Song Lyrics - That's All Behind Me Now

Why do I keep throwing my memories away?
Every new girl wants to kill my past
Didn’t you?
Now that you’re gone
The next one will want to kill you too

I don’t want to deny my past
I just want something that will last
Why waste time talking about her?
Maybe we should remember
That’s all behind me now

I never think of them
Except when you bring it up
I swear
I’m not the type to go back
Why do you want to go there?

Don’t make me deny my past
I just want something that will last
Why waste time talking about her?
Maybe you should remember
That’s all behind me now

You were supposed to make me forget
But you kept reminding my heart
Why did you do that?
You turned us off before we could start

Don’t make me deny my past
I just want something that will last
Why waste time talking about her?
Maybe you should remember
That’s all behind me now

I put on a slow song about the coast
And then I said, “Let’s dance”
But before long
You pushed me away
And said, “That was ya’lls song”

It must be terrible to be so afraid
Why are you scared of someone like that?
You worry about stuff that will never happen
But I can’t get you to relax

Don’t make me deny my past
I just want something that will last
Why waste time talking about her?
Maybe you should remember
That’s all behind me now

@jami - Yes it's sad and I've been through it with one girl in particular who destroyed our relationship over things that never happened. She was consumed with jealousy and acknowledged as much a few years later when we happened upon each other. You have to have a lot of self-confidence I guess to not worry about it until something really happens. I really need to get some music for this stuff. I'm about to buy an electric guitar and amp. I played at a friends house the other night and it was a revelation.... thank you for commenting.

Sounds like somebody suffers from the wrong (bad) form of jealousy and is too controlling. Too bad so many people don't get the difference in good and bad jealousy! Run, run, run if you're the Gingerbread Man! Great poem--marking for my son!
