Nostalgia lingers in my mind
The mention of your name
Brings it all back again
Memories of our past
How long are they supposed to last?
Longing lingers in my soul
My heart now begs to be whole
Once again, to be with you
Hoping you’ll feel the same this time, too
How am I supposed to let this go?
Moving on didn’t seem so hard
But then you left and everything fell apart
Now I’m here with the pieces all around
Some have been lost and not found
How am I supposed to leave you behind?
You’ve been a part of my being
From the very beginning, it does seem
Maybe we were never meant to be
But then these feelings come back to me
How am I supposed to keep away?
Wondering forever why you didn’t stay.
It’s said to be better to have loved and lost
But how can I agree when it was my heart that you tossed?
Left alone in the dust, my feelings were accursed
Never did I learn to put myself first
Maybe requited love is only found in legends and ‘lore
The hopeful part of me is now no more
The time has come darling; it’s your turn to respond
How can I move on after having my feelings pawned?
