When will I see you again
You left with no goodbye
Not a single a word was said
No final kiss to seal any sins
I had no idea of the state we were in

I know I have a fickle heart
And a bitterness and a wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

[Chorus]
But don't you remember
Don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When was the last time
You thought of me
Or have you completely erased me from your memory
I often think about where I went wrong
The more I do the less I know

I know I have a fickle heart
And a bitterness and a wandering eye and a heaviness in my head

[Chorus]
But don't you remember
Don't you remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

Gave you the space so you could breathe,
I kept my distance so you would be free,
And hope that you find the missing piece,
To bring you back to me,

[Chorus]
Why don't you remember?
Don't your remember?
The reason you loved me before
Baby, please remember me once more

When will I see you again?

    Feeling like the 0nly 0ne in the relati0nship who tries to make things work yet the other partner just go 0n and live as if everything is okay.
    Trying to make it but n0thing is appriciated.

    Thank u jayv. This song would always remind me of u. But right now, i got to move on for my own self. I just wish that what was left of us would always be something neither of us wont regret. Keep safe.

    Its broke up without closure like not knowing what really happen that lead to separation and you think he/she'll come back someday becouse you still love the person but no longer together
