"All of this Past" as written by Sarah Bettens and D. Lohner....
Here I go again
Slipping further away
Letting go again
Of what keeps me in place
I like it here
But it scares me to death
There is nothing here

Hmmm mm mmmm mmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm mmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm

The light is beautiful
But I'm darker than life
And you are wonderful
But this moment is mine

All of this dust
All of this past
All of this over and gone and never coming back
All of this forgotten
Not by me

I find comfort here
'Cause I know what is lost
Hope is always fear
For the pain that we cost
And I have searched for the reason to go on
And I've tried and I've tried
But its taken me so long
I might be better off
Closing my eyes
And god will come looking for me in time

All of this dust
All of this past
All of this over and gone and never coming back
All of this forgotten
Not by me

All of this dust
All of this past
All of this over and gone and never coming back
All of this forgotten
Not by me

I can see myself
I look peaceful and pale
But underneath I can barely inhale
I can hear myself singing the song
Over and over until it belongs
To me

Hmmm mm mmmm mmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm mmmm
Hmmm mm mmmmm

    General CommentIts being deeply attached to the past and not being able to let go.

    "Here I go again
    slipping further away
    Letting go again
    Of all that keeps me in place
    I like it here
    But it scares me to death
    There is nothing here"

    She tries to move forward but she's so scared that she keeps going back to her past for comfort even though theres nothing left of it.

    "Light is beautiful
    But I'm darker than light
    And you are wonderful
    But this moment is mine"

    She appreciates the fact the world is beautiful but then she feels that her life is too dark. She appreciates the other person but kinda doesnt have place for them in her world.

    "All of this dust
    All of this past
    All of this over
    And gone and never coming back
    All of this forgotten
    But not by me"

    Nothing is left of her past and its never coming back but she hasnt forgetten anything.

    "I find comfort here
    'Cause I know what is lost
    Hope is always fear
    For the pain it may cost
    And I've searched for
    Reason to go on
    And I've tried and tried
    But it's taking me so long
    I might be better off closing my eyes
    And God will come looking for me
    In time"

    Since she has experienced so much hurt n pain n lost parts of her she prefers to go back. Alot of time we enter new relationships or experiences really hopeful they'll turn out good but she's scared of hope itself therefore moving forward becoz those experiences cause pain. She wants to live but she cant find any reason and shes give up hoping God will eventually find her.

    "I can see myself
    I look peaceful and pale
    But underneath
    I can barely Inhale
    I can hear myself
    Singing that song
    Over and over until it belongs to me"

    Outside shes a completely different person from what she is on the inside.
