They were words you once felt,
You made them disappear.

Maybe it's the only way to forget,
But is it better to forget?

Erase all that you know.

What if it was everything you were meant to,
Remember?

Sometimes Fate is cruel.
Sometimes things just aren't meant for you,

Don't look to the ground as you walk,
Don't let 'em think lowly of you,
Afraid to show your face...

Just look ahead,
It always gets better..

Lift your head high,
Just because it didn't work the way you wanted it to,
Doesn't mean you won't find anything better.

Puzziling thoughts race through my mind,
I know I said I wouldn't write for anyone else.

I guess it's just a curse I bare on my shoulders,
What else is there to write about?

Maybe this is my own cruel Fate..
But I can deal.

You shouldn't erase all that you know.

But make it all disappear,
And create a new memory if you desire.

Careful to clean all of the glass,
One spot missing could be your downfall..

Your actions and words confuse me,
Maybe that's why I haven't completely forgotten,

A slight difference in this town interests me..
It's in my nature to want to fix a problem.

Another cruel Fate of who I am...

You erased all you knew,
It wasn't wise in my eyes.

Ten months, ten years, ten days,
From now, you can't reread and relearn...
