I want to go back to a simpler time
When we could believe what we were told.
When we would hand our heart to someone
And it mattered to them.
When deals were made, and confirmed
With a shake of a hand.
Was far more popular
I want to go back to when marriages meant
Nobody was ever walking away
No matter what
They were working through it.
I want to go back to a time before computers
Before you could hide behind them
Like a coward
Pretending you feel things that you don’t.
I want to go back to simpler times
Back to when I could believe
When it wasn’t popular to be cruel.
When I felt like I deserved to be held
When I felt like I deserved to be loved
When I got a glimpse of it
And I would chase it with such ferocity
That it would consume me.
Maybe I don’t want to go back
Maybe I just want to believe.
