How Could It Be

I dreamt of the good old times
And foresaw the possible good days
How futuristic could it be
When in spite the pain in the past
In my tomorrow, it’s still you I want to see

I remembered the small things you’ve done
And reminded myself that there’s nothing grand
But how amazing could it be
That with all your simplicity
I still can’t forget how extraordinary you are to me

I reminisced the words you’ve told me
And how much I wanted to hear your affection
How deafening could it be
That in spite all the silent treatment you gave me
I’d still choose you to sing love songs with me

I can still feel the agony of our sour dates
Filled with wrong choices of oversalted food
But how tasty could it be
That in spite all the bitterness
I’m still longing for that sweetness you’ve had for me

Oh how long will it take
When I think of you in every move I make
How pitiful could I be
As I hope we’re still together
Knowing, everyday, that everything was over

Before I Met You

Before I met you
Life was bland but way simpler
No complexities, just black and white
I should have known better

Before I met you
Life was easier and I was happier
Didn’t need someone to make me smile Guessed I should have known better

Because when I met you
Life started to be filled with colors
There was green, red and laughter
Hoping it was something better

When I met you
T’was no longer just happiness but ecstasy
Excitement and elation felt when we’re together
Back then, I was certain it’s better

Yes, I met you
You add everything, filled every corner
Blasted me with hues of delight, sadness and fright
Will it ever still get better?

I met you
Maybe we’re just meant to stay there
Just an ordinary meeting of strangers
Is it something I can call better?

You came to meet me
Maybe you came to feel something for me
But I met you to realize I’ll just leave you
And I knew that ain’t better for us two

Before I met you
It was never an option to leave someone
Never thought it’s what I’ve done
Don’t know if something better was really gone

Because as I left you
I left my heart with you
You took everything and left me with blues
Was wrong when I thought I was better without you

After I left you
Life has changed somehow
Regrets were felt then, even now
I’ll get better but how?

But I’m never going back to you
Because I left you
I was just meant to cross roads with you
But not journey with you

I left you, I finally met you
Life was bland but never simpler
More complexities, back to black and white Should I have regrets this time?
I should have known better
