what did you tell yourself?

What do you tell yourself today?
How do you explain to your heart
all the things you’re feeling now?
Your life is moving on, it’s different
now, for sure. but this feeling is going to stay Before this, all you needed was a project
And folks who wanted more of you than
you could give them
But there was something inside just
waiting to be fulfilled
And I guess I happened to come along that day

So what do your tell yourself
When you start talking to you about me?
Have you written me off as one of those mistakes
That you wish you had never made? What are the words that you use
When you see my picture or hear my name?
Can you tell me is it longing or is it regret?
Is it the worst thing or is it the best?

What do you tell yourself today
when you get up and make the coffee?
or when you watch the stars dancing
and you’re out wading in the stream
trying to wash away all the memories?

That you wish you had never made? What are the words that you use
When you see my picture or hear my name?
Can you tell me is it longing or is it regret?
Is it the worst thing or is it the best yet?
