The world’s moved on
But I’m still here
The same place I’ve always been

And though I’ve tried
To shrug it off
I just can’t seem to get ahead

So here I am
Time’s forgotten soldier
Burying my past with lies

With your eyes of guilt
You see through them all
But at least I can say I tried

The wind still blows
The sun’s still warm
But all I feel is numb

I rack my brain
Trying to explain
And pray for forgiveness that won’t ever come

I’ve seen the good
I’ve seen the bad
I’ve seen the grass on both sides is not green

Though I’m so tired
I cannot sleep
For all I’ve done haunts my dreams

It hurts so badly
But it won’t show
Because I’ve trained myself not to cry

The world’s moved on
But I’m still here
Just waiting for the end of time
To pass me by
