Don't Look Back

Love doesn't happen overnight.
Love doesn't argue about what's wrong
or what's right.
And don't expect to find a love that will last
if the only place you're searching is in your past...

Love is hard to find; it's even harder to let it go.
Don't settle for something just because it's what you know...

We tell ourselves this time will be different.
What may work for a little while longer
is irrelevant...

You can't fix what's already been broken.
You can't believe the new promises that have been spoken,
because the pain you forgave once before
will always linger in your mind each time they walk out that door.

This time won't be the same,
yet you find yourself playing the game,
but in this game nobody will win,
because every sinner is likely to sin again.

Your heart is in a million pieces,
Your life is full of hits and misses,
but one thing that still remains
is your ability to accept the things you can't change.
We all make decisions that we regret,
but it's our choice to forgive,
just never forget.

Always stay true to yourself and your values,
'cause in the end that's all that matters,
Don't waste time thinking you're not worth it,
'cause no matter what anybody else thinks,
there's somebody out there who might just think you're perfect.

Love doesn't happen overnight.
Love doesn't argue about what's wrong
or what's right,
and don't expect to find a love that will last
if the only place you're searching is in your past.
