Feelings are intense. Going through the five stages of grief in the mid 90's, I'd passed through Denial and here I was at Anger. I was angry at myself. I was angry at her. I was angry at God.

You know what, though? God can take it. Looking back, it was a great blessing I didn't end up with her. I didn't see it until years later what God had delivered me from. And now I trust Him more than ever because I can see how He was guiding my path, even in suffering rejection and loss.

Maybe you too are suffering those feelings. Vent with this song. It's a fun one to play loud, and it reminds me that my past doesn't dictate my future anymore.

Cheers. - Asche-


Every time I step into the light your shadow follows me
Every time I try to move on, your memory beckons me
I've loved you since I met you
It's now a fatal flaw
Holding onto what is futile has been my only thought

If I could I'd leave this behind
I've carried this pain for too long

Maybe I've had all I can
Maybe I am too weak
Maybe your ghost still haunts me
When will I finally have peace?
I'd die to reconcile this void that I possess
This hurt that bares your name is all that I have left

If I could I'd leave this behind
I've carried this pain for too long
If I could I'd love to change your mind
But I've been dead to you far too long
