Did I let go of my old self Or did she abandon me?
I lost a part of me, maybe a lot In the phase, maybe a voyage Of being clueless what love was To discerning what it was not If the universe granted a boon To this parched heart of mine I would ask for myself, my old self That part of me I lost in the days of yore
The old me did not want To own anything but her identity She never wanted to fall in love Stayed in tune with her zeal Had so much confidence That she will win over this world Wasn't afraid of her fellow human
She loved butterflies until Love caged them inside her She loved rain until Love showered them through her eyes She loved music until Love made her heart moan She loved love until Love ruined everything she loved
Did I let go of my old self Or did she abandon me? Was she afraid of the love I killed Or did love kill her?
The butterflies are gone But my stomach still hurts Those poor flies might have Shanghaied that old me in redress Maybe if I embrace Ms. Love She will release my old self Maybe love isn't that cruel
Love may not be a hero in disguise But it's humans who make her a villain
