Nostalgia, I was wrong. You have no heart or good intentions, only a hollow and a hint of blame. She is two places at once; she takes it well , she is lost in herself.
The present colors the past, I know: it paints in broad strokes, in a single tone. How can you live with that? I don’t. You walk in landscapes, that can’t be rearranged, in color schemes forever changed.
Nostalgia, you fill the scene with a hint of ‘could have been’, only a taste upon the wind. Yeah, she is a smile within the cold. She always has, she always will.
Oh, no: it’s the memories that just won’t go. When you’re alone, you know every sight you see reminds you of me.
