I Was Her

lyrics

Sittin’ in a stranger’s home I don't recognize myself / Where did the time go? Was I someone else? / I walk down the hallways, but nothing’s familiar / A whisper reminds me I'm home / But I don't know

Lookin’ through a stranger's photographs and memories / Seems to me she was a happy girl / Raised in a house that was built from the ground up with love of a family / When did the present turn against me?

You say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me I buried away / But I won't forget those words / ‘Cause I was her

Starin’ through a stranger’s window when suddenly / Who she was comes flooding back to me / Her time isn't over, but it's stranger getting older / Guess I never thought I would too / Will I ever find my way back to you…

Say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me / I buried away / But I won't forget those words

She had no reason to complain / No reason to change / But she did somehow, someway / Believed in ‘meant to be’ / But she learned there's no guarantee when it comes to fate / And something changed

Sittin’ in a stranger’s home / I don’t recognize myself / When did I become someone else?

You say all that's left is a memory / But I still remember that girl / And the lock that you gave me / I buried away / But I won't forget those words / ‘Cause I was her / I was her / I was her / I was her
