Here's to doors, and "a lot of others" opening up.

I'm posting these lyrics as a dedication to a time in my life, a time and place. NOT to a person. To a small fraction of my life that has passed.

Now that it's all said and done,
I can't believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down,
Like an old abandoned house.

What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath.
I fell too far, was in way too deep.
Guess I let you get the best of me.


Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.

I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.


You took a hammer to these walls,
Dragged the memories down the hall,
Packed your bags and walked away.
There was nothing I could say.

And when you slammed the front door shut,
A lot of others opened up,
So did my eyes so I could see
That you never were the best for me.


Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.

And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better.
And now I'm picking up the pieces.

I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,
I got over you.

That is a really moving song. I can appreciate dedicating it to a part of your life, very well done. I will have to do the same some time.

I have your Pay it Forward gift btw, it's all ready to be sent out. Email me from my blog and I will ship it to you.

Can't wait to see all the fantastic pics you are going to take.
