May I Remind You
quite seems the way it used to
Nothing falls to pieces like I knew it would
Sometime in the essence of who I was
I returned the favors of cruelty I never knew I possessed
If each time I've closed my eyes
Each time I've parted lips
And pardoned fouls
Each time ive ruined memories
And gone away
If each time I'd only stopped.
Maybe I'd be different today.
I'd write like I once did.
Maybe I might have that feeling
That knowledge and self confidence
That I am worth something still
One day I will be something
But Im not different.
I'm not worth the grace I've been given.
And I never stopped when I should have.
I'll keep going
I know this
But I won't live out the rest of my days
Without remembering that I am not the woman I should be.
Without hating myself for so much
And I have myself for that.
I have myself.
One day I'll be who I want to be.
As soon as I forget who I am.
