Ghosts of Yesterday
Could Not Last
Where I Belong

It was all in those eyes, so expressive,
there was no mistaking the inflection.
It was still there, just as on the day we first met,
the meaning being far too clear, I tried not to see.
All I had to do was hold that gaze a little longer,
and I would be right back where I had been,
but I would not concede, not this time,
I could not take another chance.
The chance that you would break my heart again.
I had let you do it, once before.
I let you back in, let you take over my heart,
Freely gave over my life to you.
I really thought that you were the one.
By the time I realized my mistake,
you had already retreated back into your shell,
taking what was left of my heart with you.
I am still lost and confused when around you.
Kissing you always got me into trouble.
I know this, so I take a step back, avert my eyes,
if I avoid the look, I avoid the kiss and losing my heart again.
