I rid all traces of you today
threw them into a fire and watched them burn,
I asked ancient spirits to take my pain away
although it made my stomach churn.
I said that if you and I were not meant to be
to finally cease my dreams,
let me go, let me be free
I'm tearing at the seams.
I've said goodbye to your marble face
I've said goodnight to your emerald eyes,
pulled away from the warm embrace
and memories of you and I.
I've cried our past away
and forced shut that stubborn door of our love tale,
although my heart begs me to stay
I need to escape this nostalgic jail.
I need to let you go, this one last time
please don't come looking for me again,
I wanted to keep you forever mine
but I can no longer hold on to way back when.
