-The brightest future will always be based on the forgotten past
- It takes who you are and where you've been to make the person you are today
-As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person
-To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail

I thought we were cool
When all along I looked a fool
But I don't have to worry
'Cause now you're gone

I remember all the fights
We had them all the time
All the time you would lie
But now you're gone

The past I will not notice
'Cause I read between the lines
The future's my focus
'Cause of my hope to survive
If you were so superior
Then why am I still alive?

Don't speak to me
Don't speak
'Cause I'm free
So don't go in my aim
'Cause you're dead to me
Don't speak

This song was about me telling my abusive mother that after I moved out, to never to speak to me again, because I'm free!
