Lyrics

It's so hard, letting go
I run into people that we used to know
They always ask, "Girl, How have you been?
Weren't you the best of lovers and friends?"
I take a moment and all I can say
As If

As if I needed a reminder
You'd think my friends would be kinder
As if I'd forget to breathe, the sun forget to shine
Don't think I don't cry cause you're not in my life
We may not have tomorrow, but yesterday will always be
As if

Friends can sometimes be abrupt
They think they're helping by fixing me up
But it's only you that I wanna see
When will I heal from your memory
I take a moment and answer myself
As If

As if I needed a reminder
You think my friends would be kinder
As if I'd forget to blink, the stars forget to shine
Don't think I don't cry cause you're not in my life
We may not have tomorrow, but yesterday will always be
As if

I know they all mean well
but they're not the ones that are living this hell
It doesn't matter to me what they say
I glance at your picture as I put it away
As If
