Three Years On

posted 16 April 2002


It's been one long year
Since I changed your world,
Since you changed your view of me.
It's been twelve long months
Since those hurtful words,
Those words that still haunt me.

It's been far too long
Since we really spoke,
Since we shared a knowing smile.
It's been ages now
Since we talked alone
Or walked for half a mile.

It's been three long years
Since I made up my mind,
To change my world, to tell the truth.
It was two long years
'Til I had the guts
To bring that truth to you.

I don't know how long
It will be until
We get back to where we were.
Or how long it will be,
'Til we forget
How much we hurt each other.

I don't know how long
It'll take to forgive,
But I know that I'll never forget,
I'll not look at you
Without hearing those words,
And seeing your face wet.

But I miss the way
You used to look,
And the way we used to talk,
I so miss the way
We used to hug,
Is it now too late for that?

I cannot forget
The hurtful words,
I can't forget the face,
Til I can forget,
The good times before,
And put new ones in their place.



It's been one long year since I changed your world, since you changed your view of me. It's been 12 long months since those hurtful words, those words that still haunt me. It's been far too long since we really spoke, far too long since we shared a glance. It's been ages now since we walked alone and talked about nothing much. It's been 3 long years since I changed my world, since I made up my mind to tell the truth. It was two long years til I had the guts to bring that truth to you. I don't know how long it will be again til we get back to where we were, I don't know how long it will be, til we forget how much we hurt each other and let each other be. I don't know how long it'll take to forgive, but I know that I'll never forget, I'll not look at you without hearing those words, and seeing that look on your face. I miss the way you used to look, I miss the way we used to talk, I miss the way we used to hug, can we please do that again? I can't forget the hurtful words, I can't forget the look, til I can forget the good times before, and replace them with good times new.
