In time.

From time I find myself thinking about
January 2015 but it's April 2017.

Thinking about, how it was only 2 years ago.
how we were only 2 years younger than we are today.
Thinking about how how we'd recieve backlash from others,
about the reactions from people, over our own judgements.

From Time I find myself thinking about,
January 2015 but its April 2017.

June 2015, thinking about how it was probably for the better
not to have brought anyone else into this mess. 
I knew it was the anger I had built inside
that had me thinking and feeling grateful
of that one time back in January 2015. 

September 2015, would you still want me then
if you couldn't even look ime in the eye.
Maybe what happened that day in September could've been stopped
by stopping what happened in January 2015.

From Time I find myself thinking about,
January 2015 but its April 2017.

December 2015, thinking about
how nice it would have been to spend the holidays together.
Maybe January 2015 could have had us all together on December 2015.
Selfish thought you'd think, that January 2015 would make you stay.

From Time I find myself thinking about,
January 2015 but its April 2017.
