You,
You over there,
I know what's wrong
I can tell by your stare

The way you look
Down at the ground
Silently,
Don't make a sound

I know what you're thinking
You're thinking about the past
I understand,
But the past doesn't last

I know it was hard,
Trust me, I know
But some things
You need to let go

It's very hard
To make the past go away
The bruises may be gone,
But the memories stay

I know you need someone,
Someone to be there,
Someone who will listen,
And actually care

You've been through so much,
And I have too,
I could be that someone,
Who's there for you

It's difficult to find,
People today,
Who understand you,
And are able to say

It is very hard
To make the past go away
The bruises may be gone,
But the memories stay

Those people are important,
I know quite a few,
I surround myself with them,
Because they'll know what to do

They understand me,
Why I act the way I do
I could be like them,
And stand beside you

Know that when you feel worthless,
You're really not
And that, for some people,
You're all that they've got

It's very hard
To make the past go away
The bruises may be gone,
But the memories stay
