the man with eyes eons older than his smile told me that
we are different people all throughout our lives
but we must never forget who we used to be

i don’t think you’ve forgotten
what you and i used to mean

our definition still rings true in your mind
weighs down your high-as-a-kite conscience
tolling like a liberty bell

no, you’ve shoved us in a corner
a place where the light doesn’t quite reach

you’re trying to rebuild yourself, i know
but you’re using all the wrong stones
you’ve got a faulty foundation and no hindsight in sight

who’s to say you won’t crack under the pressure
capsize and light up the sky in your beautiful demise
when the next storm hits

you tried to cut me out
but you’re using safety scissors
you’re still the same scared girl i knew
back when my world was just me and you

    "We all change, when you think about it, we're all different people; all through our lives, and that's okay, that's good, you've gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be." -Doctor Who (The Time of the Doctor)
