Linger In My Heart

Even in the blossom of something new I can't help but still remain fixed on the past
I'm jeopardizing myself from enjoying this new happiness simply because the guilt & remorse of our dead love lingers in my heart

I wish I didn't care at all, but I do.
I wish I could erase you completely from my mind, but I can't.
I wish I could move on and never think about you again, but that's impossible.

Engrained you are in my memory, my heart will always hold a place just for you, there's nothing I can do to delet you from my past.
Yet, here I am trying to figure out a way to do so.
I'm trying to forget you, to erase you and all the memories of you
I constantly find myself secretly comparing you and the new beau in my life
I consistently notice all the similarities and differences between you two
I keep telling myself not to do so, but I can't help it.
My mind won't let me keep you two separate.
There's things I've only felt with you, but there's things that only until now have I ever dreamt of and he makes me feel them, not you
Yet, still my mind brings up the memory of you and my heart refuses to let you go
