If others saw from our point of view

They’d know all the secrets we knew

We all avoid the truth like a plague

We tweak stories to avoid the pain

The way we lie to avoid the shame

Pretending we learned from mistakes

Wishing we could turn to a new page

But we’re stuck right where we’re at

We’ll laugh in public but cry alone

Feeling every song’s emotional blues

We’ll steep in memories that we hold

Trying to recapture the moments gone

And feel something familiar once again

Even if it’s wrapped in …bittersweetness
