(Why Can't I?)

Past

My past with you is complicated

Our friendship was never simple

I let you help me one time

When I was in a very dark place

I feel like I owe you one…but yet

So much has happened since

Why can't I leave you in the past?

Does thinking of then hold me back?

Do you ever reminisce that time?

The past is something to look fondly at

I can't do that with our past

Why can't I?

I help you get over girls before

We kept in touch when separated

Then you took the time

To ignore me when I needed you

I was hurt; I started to care too much

Yet I still feel like I owed you

Why can't I leave you in the past?

Does thinking of then hold me back?

Do you ever reminisce that time?

The past is something to look fondly at

I can't do that with our past

Why can't I?

I bet you don't even care about the fact

That is song is all about you

It would be understandable if

I was actually angry at you

The scary thing is I'm not

Why aren't I?

I could be mad for many things

You ignoring me for months on end

You dating girl after girl

While you obviously knew I liked you

That's just a few of the things

Yet I love our past…why?

Why can't I leave you in the past?

Does thinking of then hold me back?

Do you ever reminisce that time?

The past is something to look fondly at

I can't do that with our past

Why can't I?

Why can I move on with the past?

With everyone else except for

….You?
