Treasure Island

Before I Forget


This time last year, you were all that I had
You knew how to make me happy when I was sad
My worries I shared, my secrets I told to you
You were my sister, and you were all that I knew
You stayed my friend through thick and thin
Why did this have to change when you met him?

He turned up and turned your life around
But you suddenly put me down
I thought that I could count on you to always be there for me
But you dropped me so easily

Now who is there to dry my tears?
Who can I count on to rid of my fears?
Happiness is now just a distant feeling
And I have nothing to believe in
Because you were always the person that I looked up to
Now that you are gone, I don’t know what to do

I try to kid myself that I don’t miss you any more
But truth be told, I just want my life back to how it was before
Back when you could always make my problems seems smaller
Back when I actually had a sister

A bunch of fading photographs is all that I have left of us
And some long ago memories that are crumbling to dust
Now I am having trouble remembering what you look like
I am finding it hard to be alright
Give me a chance to see your face one more time
Before I forget every crease and line
I want to share my life with you again
Before I forget what it feels like to have a friend

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
