lesson above all...
I am the girl who brushed against you,
just the other day.
The girl who wants to talk to you
but doesnt know what to say.
I still remember you after all these years
and I still love you after all this time and tears.
Now you don't remember me, now we have departed.
but I will remember you, you left me broken hearted.
Thank you for the love,
he love that was never there
Thank you for the memories,
the memories we never shared
Thank you for the truth,
the truth you never told
For all the hurt and lies
were the things that made me whole
And I really want to thank you
for never loving me at all
Because you taught me an important lesson,
a lesson above all...
