On this day I'm crying over a boy
Your voice keeps booming 
"It's okay, he was never the one for you 
Just someone who was there to teach you love"
But I do not heed to your voice 
My heart goes no bleeding
And I keep on crying

It's two years later and I'm still crying over him 
Your words keep popping up in my head
I laugh at myself because I know it's the whole truth

And now three years later I look back
This time I'm laughing at how
How our unwillingness to let go 
Of that which is not good to us 
Can harm us 
How I was so hung up on a guy 
I knew was never meant to be in my life
It sounds all so foolish 
But this is my past 
More than anyone I know 
How love renders a person blind
