It's all about what you do
When nobody cares.

Isn't that life?

No one's making you spend
Lonely nights
Poisoning yourself,
Through and through.

I'm wondering about the future
And
I've got work to do,
To be someone better
Than who I was
Before.

And I've come a long way,
I really think you'd be proud
If you had been there
To watch me grow,
But I guess all that matters
Is that you're here now.

You say that we would've been friends
In high school,
Maybe we would've gotten together sooner,
But darling don't you know?
You would've hated the person I was,
I was a bundle of
Damage and poor attempts
At displays of good intentions.

And I tried too hard,
And I said too little.

And the good I did,
No one saw,
But I wouldn't change a thing
About the lives I touched.
They are who they are,
And I am who I am.

I'm going to keep
Being the me you love,
And I hope as we grow:
We grow together.
And I hope as we grow:
We grow together.

I have my own regrets,
And I grieve over them from time to time.
But life is all about moving forward,
So I guess that's what I'll do--
I'll move forward
With you.
It's a little long, but I guess I had a lot to say.

Two weeks and three days!
