It wasnt so bad,
The same world kept on turning,
The same stars hung in the sky...
The birds kept on singing,
The sun still melted into the night...
The days were nothing special,
They were all that they should be...
And everyone went about their way,
(Everyone but me.)
For me the world turned a little slower,
I watched the sun go down alone..
Instead of seeing the stars from YOUR eyes,
I watched them from my own...
The birds' songs weren't music anymore,
I'd lost the only heaven I'd ever had...
I had to build a new life without you,
It wasnt really all that bad...
I thought about the good times,
How while you'd kiss me I'd feel you smile...
The way your eyes would burn right through me,
And fill my soul with fire...
Oh how safe I felt in your arms,
Listening to your heartbeat..
And oh the way I loved you with all I had-
(You meant the world to me.)
I dont fall asleep in your arms anymore,
I dream alone as I dream of you...
And I wake up crying when I think of when,
Your eyes said you no longer loved me too...
But one day I know you will remember me-
And the way I held you tight...
And YOU'LL be the one who wishes for ME,
On each star in the sky..
You'll want me back-
And ask me to let you fill my heart again,
But I'll refuse to let you in..
And in that moment, when the tables turn,
And I leave YOU feeling sad..
I'll smile as I assure you,
Its REALLY not that bad.."
