There's something that lurks within you,
Way down deep inside
It's something that you don't want to admit,
Something you attempt to hide.
It's something that I know all too well,
It's something we used to share.
You think that you covered it with stones,
But I know it's still there.
It's that part of you that's missing,
That sparkle that's gone from your eyes.
It's the piece of you that belongs to me
And it's a part that you cannot deny.
It's that magic that was in your smile,
That music in your voice.
You lost it when you left me here.
You lost yourself in your choice.
There's a part of me that belongs to you.
I can't make it go away.
I wish I could give it all back to you.
Instead, I have to live this way.
I can't begin to heal if you're still here.
I'd lose my light if you chose to go.
I can't wash myself clean of your presence.
You captured my very soul.
I can't hide the way I feel for you.
I can't still the beating of my heart.
You left an empty shell behind you,
Because you took the very best parts.
I want to be content with myself.
I long for you to set me free.
But I know you just keep holding on,
Because you know you belong to me.
