Steve Perry – What Was lyrics

What Was

What was I to do?
Never should have called me up.
What was I to do?
Haven't we both had enough?

I still think of you,
Even though we're miles apart.
What was I to do?

The fire is still there,
My heart is too scared to fall again.
It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.

There you go again,
Girl, it's never going to end.
It's something we can't have,
We must let go.

I want so much to say,
I love you more today.
The hardest thing I've ever had to say,
Goodbye.

What was I to do?
Never should have called me up.
What was I to do?
Haven't we both had enough?

Oh, the fire is still there,
My heart is too scared to fall again.
It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.

It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.

    In struggling to let go of a love that was, sometimes we tend to torture one another emotionally as we want so desperately to hold on to a love that was not healthy for either of us. Kind of like a "bad habit" or "addiction" as some would say. It's bad enough realizing the loneliness that separation brings, The saddest part is realizing the heartache will never end. The only way to break free is to accept the past and move forward. The love will always remain.
