I used to stay up late at night
Just to watch you sleep.
And I never bothered looking down
Before I took that leap.
That leap that brought me straight to your arms,
Looking into your eyes.
I thought we were just having fun,
But it was love in a clever disguise.
I used to sit and think of things
That would make you smile.
And I always knew you'd be THAT one,
Despite my useless denials.
I thought I'd found my reason
To give in to happiness.
You forever changed my life
When you gave me that first kiss.
I used to think of reasons to call,
Just to hear your voice.
I never thought it would go this far,
But I made my choice.
We talked about our future together,
Even gave our "son" a name.
How was I to know when you touched me
That I'd never be the same?
I used to think that you were my everything,
The only one meant for me.
Then you told me you were leaving,
And I had to set you free.
"We" were gone so quickly,
Just the slightest whisper through the years.
I've stopped believing that you'll come back,
But I wish you would wipe away my tears.
