The Girl From Yesterday

It wasn’t really sad the way they said good-bye
Or maybe it just hurt so bad she couldn’t cry
He packed his things, walked out the door and drove away
And she became the girl from yesterday
He took a plane across the sea to some foreign land
She stayed at home and tried so hard to understand
How someone who had been so close could be so far away
And she became the girl from yesterday
She doesn’t know what’s right
She doesn’t know what’s wrong
She only knows the pain that comes from waiting so long
And she doesn’t count the teardrops
That she’s cried while he’s away
Because she knows deep in her heart
That he’ll be back someday
The light’s on in the window; she’s waiting by the phone
Talking to a memory that’s never coming home
She dreams of his returning and the things that he might say
But she’ll always be the girl from yesterday

Since my settlement in Egypt and a lot of ppl think that i’m dull, many others think that i’m weird…

they say i’m not outgoing at all in the beginning of knowing someone…i dunno if this is good or not…does this keeps awful characters from contacting? does this keep good characters from communicating…i just dont know…

my teachers always said i’m an example for the perfect student…though i dont get that excellent marks, what is the use lol…i will lost contact with them anyway

my character is complex, i always knew that…i react towards many ppl in an extreme way…extremely accepting, or extremely refusing…even if i found some good or bad sides from both sides…

this makes me sometimes befriend ppl who r good from the outside and really bad from the inside…

God be with you Ireland…God be with you my second mom…
