  • I loved you for the minute
    When you decided to tell me the truth
    I heard you and that night I cried for you
    I know that you're alone just like everyone else in the world

    Don't tell me that things don't get better
    'Cause sometimes they do
    Sometimes they do and I know they will for you
    The days are getting shorter

    And you're forgetting the things you just said
    I'm hoping that you'll move ahead
    I wonder if you'll ever come to realize what I always knew
    I wrote Holden Caulfield and so did you

    I want to know if you want to wake up
    I want to know when you'll stop dying
    For what you've done
    Stop crying for what you've done

    It's only the past
    It's only life
    What have you done that's so bad
    It's only life so don't waste time

    Why don't you stop crying
    For what's done for what is done Writer/s: BENJAMIN M FOSTER, BENJAMIN M. FOSTER
