I don’t care for that little piece of my life,
The one you took away from me;
It was a phase, a moment left in time
And one I was so scared to leave.
But now it’s gone I don’t think of it much,
The tides of time have run away with me,
The love is gone, the feelings were all lost,
When I returned across the sea (and I found out I could be free)
Ohhh did you think I would wait?
Did you think the love was that great?
But then we parted, and whatever was there has gone,
It’s never something I would dwell upon.
Kisses on postcards can only go so far
Before I begin to undo
And all those men waiting at the bar
They all make me think of you
What’s done is done; the sands have passed,
What’s lost is lost, we can’t make it last
And all the while you thought I would wait,
Expecting that you and I were a product of fate.
So, what if our time has run?
And all those memories are made.
I grow old, I grow fatter, I become
Just a silhouette to fade.
But I couldn’t wait, not for anyone
My life was mine and my battles to be won
I had my reasons; my goals are my own
The world was mine, still yet to roam.
