Verse 1

Remember, you once told me, you can't forget me

Even if someday dementia had you inside its fists?

Yeah, I know it was just you toying with words again,

Very smooth by the way, but I took it as a promise.

That's why, even when you've cut the rope,

I still sincerely believe and I seriously hope

Chorus

Years from now, you'll look back at the time when

I ended up accidentally breaking your purple pen.

You'll smile at the memory, my name forgotten-

A silly girl who searched for love in a heart so barren.

Verse 2

I don't think I'll ever forget even a word, a moment.

I don't think I'll ever forget just how smitten I was.

I was lost in your brown eyes, in that charming smile,

Like a love sick puppy, school girl with a little crush.

But it was love in a way I never knew before,

And even though you've slammed your door

Chorus

I still keep on going back to that moment when

I was terrified you'd scold me about your purple pen.

But you laughed it off, all was forgiven and forgotten-

So warm, I couldn't imagine you had a heart so barren.

Bridge

And I know you'll lose the purple pen somewhere along the lanes of life,

Just like I know we'll lose contact somewhere around the time you find a wife,

And I'm wondering, am I supposed to replace it?

And I'm wondering, can I keep it, can I face it?

Do I wanna keep a souvenir of a love so doomed?

And remember the day I had my heart entombed?

I know the answer to that question is hell no,

I know I should try to move on, try to let go.

Chorus

But I still keep on going back to that moment when

I was terrified you'd scold me about your purple pen.

But you laughed it off, all was forgiven and forgotten-

So warm, I couldn't imagine you had a heart so barren.

(And I hope)

Chorus

Years from now, you'll look back at the time when

I ended up accidentally breaking your purple pen.

You'll smile at the memory, my name forgotten-

A silly girl who searched for love in a heart so barren.

Outro

And there you go,

I'm writing about you again.

I'm thinking about you,

And your stupid purple pen.

A/N: Personal.
