The Past

I've tried so hard to make it right
Forgive the things you did that night
But some things can't be forgotten
Never in this too long life
I've got murder in my heart and mind
I have nothing left to live or find
Can't believe what I've become
A man so empty and so blind
With sadness
And impotent anger
Nowhere to go that I'll forget the past
I live in limbo
And I try so hard to be content
But nothing makes me happy anymore
I close my eyes
And lock the door
I wonder why I can't forget
And move on in my life
It seems like time has paused
On the day that I found out
Someone needs to pay the price
And it seems like it is me
Living in the past
Like a fool
As everyone else moves forward
To the future
