I swore we’d last forever

2/5/2014 For Karen

Do you remember
Way back in highschool
One day we just wanted to be
Something more than friends
At the time it felt like the best thing
I swore we would last forever
You swore if we didn’t, nothing will change

Time passed and we grew older
Each day our time grew shorter
I never even saw it coming
I still swear we would be together
You didn’t assure me anymore
At the time it felt alright
You told me nothing has changed

One day we just stopped talking
I still thought we would be alright
I waited for your call
I was growing tired and worried
I’ve known then something’s wrong
Still I swore we’d be together

A week passed before you called
Said you didn’t feel it anymore
Said I wasn’t enough anymore
I thought you were just tired
I told you we can take a break
I was so tired and so afraid
Still I swore we could fix this

One night you called to tell me
There was somebody new
I couldn’t believe what I heard
Didn’t we swear we’d be forever?

Time passed and we grew older
Each day we grew apart
I swore we’d last forever
At the time it felt like the best thing
You swore if we didn’t, nothing will change
At the time we thought we had it figured

But we didn’t last forever
And everything has changed
I swore I’d be strong
Swore one day I’ll forget you
At the time it seemed impossible
Still I swore I’d try

Every day when I wake up
I still remember you
But each day I’m growing stronger
Each day I’m growing happier
And at night before I go to bed
I stop the tears from falling
Instead I tell myself I have to be brave
Because tomorrow is a new day
Tomorrow will make me stronger
