    Stop putting restraints on something
    that was designed to be beautiful
    Stop holding the past against them
    start lookin at what you could have
    Stop setting him up for failure
    And then realizing that
    You killin the both of you
    stop tryin to outrun love
    stop over analyzing his feelings
    He's the truth and that's why he fell for
    you in the first place
    He don't deserve for you to pull
    away the thing that he can depend on
    Who the hell are you
    To decide that he can't have you
    you were meant for him
    And nothing you could ever do
    Could change that
    No number of men you
    Could lie about and pretend
    To want could hold him from
    you Stop messin up
    What is set for your future
    you keepin testin the
    waters one day you gone
    drown from your own
    Stupidity
    just keep everything for him
    he needs you and you need him
    Just be content in that
    Just
    Quit messin' up
    And that is what I had to tell
    MYSELF
    today

    I was really able to relate to this, the past can be a stepping stone or a stumbling block. You captured it well.
