If you’d told me this is where I’d be

a year ago, maybe even three

I would have laughed at your face

and told you to stop playing games.

 

Because a year ago, maybe even three,

I had lost all hope of a better day,

and I had been led to believe

that I had nothing to still do here.

 

And a year ago, maybe even three,

it all had gone black

I was convinced I could never go back,

not to feeling alive

or enjoying my life.

 

All of this, a year ago, maybe even three,

my friends had stopped caring

paying attention and noticing

that I was slowly slipping away,

could’ve been reaching the end.

 

But a year ago, maybe even three

even with all the loneliness

and the emptiness,

even when I believed there was no one else,

I wasn’t by myself.

 

It wasn’t easy, I can tell you that,

coming back from it all

and believing that once again I could be me,

all of this, a year ago, maybe even three.

 

So if you had told me that today,

nearing the end of the year

having gone through heartbreak,

pain and having lost me,

having lived what I lived

a year ago, maybe even three,

If you had told me that today I was happy.

 

I would’ve tried my hardest not to laugh,

not to sound like I’m bitter

or with a broken heart.

I would’ve only said with a sad smile

“Sure, good like with that”.

However, that was a year ago, maybe even three.

Because right now, after having had such a wild year,

and being ready to just allow myself to be free,

if you told me exactly that

Then I’d just have to tell you to stop naming facts
