Once… Then… Once… Now…

Once…
I was the best thing to happen to you
Once…
I chased the ghosts away
Once…
You couldn’t take your eyes off me
Once…
You yearned for me every minute of every day

Then…
You barely even noticed me
Then…
The ghosts came back to stay
Then…
I caught your eyes wandering
Then…
I heard you speak another’s name

Once…
This would have burnt right through my soul
Once…
I’d be haunted by inadequacies
Once…
I’d take it all into my heart
Once…
When you held all the cards and keys

Now…
I’m the best thing to happen to me
Now…
The ghosts belong to yesterday
Now…
My eyes are open wider than before
Now…
I’ll handle all that’s thrown my way
