I wrote a line for each one of you

Then I tore it up and threw it away

Because none of you deserve a mention

And I won’t go digging up old graves

Dear Me of the past, be gentle to yourself

Don’t put up with what you don’t deserve

Its not love if it hurts

If he lies, he’ll do it again

Be patient, raise your standards

You will laugh at all this one day

As for you x’s, y’s and z’s

Please don’t hold your breath.
