People keep telling me to get over you
To move on, to get away
They don’t understand my struggles
That I barely get through the day.
People keep telling me to forget you
It’s time for a new start
They say I shouldn’t live on memories
But I can’t seem to convince my heart.
People keep telling me it’s been too long
They think I’m wasting my life
I’m still patching up the wounds you left
I need help and support, not more strife.
People keep telling me it’s over
They think I should let you go
It’s not easy to forget all we’ve been through
You really did love me, I know.
People keep telling me I’m not listening
They should appreciate I need time to grieve
It wasn’t your fault your life got taken
You would never have chosen to leave.
People keep telling me it gets easier
So why keep pushing me like I’m in a race
I know I’ll start living again one day
But I’ll do it at my own pace…
