I was told that learning it the hard way would make things easy along the way.
I was told that you should rather bend than break,
so you would learn to be strong for your own sake.
I was told that nothing lasted forever
but learned at a young age it does and it felt better.
I was told that in order to be strong
you need to know the things that might hurt you for long.
I was told that the more you want the more it’s taken away
I didn’t believe it until you became the one that got away.
I was told to let go of the things not worth fighting for
And I did and with that I also lost the one that loved me more.
I was told you only regret the chances you will never take
And I took that chance when I let you go, and I regret that every day that I wake.
I was told things I held on to for years
and with these things there’s more out there to fear.
I was told of these things and more
but never of the things hidden under smiles and the things I fought for.
