Never Understand

They tell me to get over it,
They tell me that it’s in the past,
They tell me that time will heal all wounds.

They say that I think too much,
They say I do it to myself,
They want me to let it all go.

But, they’ll never understand,
That for me it isn’t in the past,
It echoes in my mind,
The screams of another time.

And I still see the blood,
When I close my eyes to sleep at night.
These wounds won’t go away,
They forever stay and their with me for the rest of my days.

But, I don’t always blame them,
These wounds have made me who I am,
In many ways I’ve moved on,
But it’s never stopped my racing mind.

Maybe I think a little too much,
But, I’d rather that than not enough.
And you’ll never understand,
I hear your voice at the worst of time

That I’ve screwed up my life,
What I could’ve been in another time.

And I still hear the words, ah,
They let me know just where I stand,
These wounds won’t go away, they forever stay,
And they’re with me for the rest of my days.

Time goes on, Life moves along,
But, I’m still stuck with this rage.
The embers burn slowly within,
Fuel is added to the fire

And it grows and grows and grows until it’s an inferno.
And I’ll never understand,
Why you can’t understand
What you don’t understand.

Maybe I’m better off alone,
These wounds won’t go away
They forever stay,
And they’re with me for the rest of my days.
