I saw you in my dreams last night
You were standing next to me
And smiling as you held my hand
The way itís supposed to be
We were laughing as we walked
And then we stopped to kiss
I awoke with my heart pounding
I could no longer feel the bliss
In a second I remembered
That youíre no longer there
My tears poured out instantly
My heart melted in despair
I held on to your picture
And I stared down at your face
I begged you to come back to me
But you were gone without a trace
I miss your arms around me
How Iíve ached to feel your touch
But you no longer want to have
This love I feel so much
I donít know what youíre doing
Or if you are missing me
So Iíll just lay back down in bed
And be with you in my dreams.
I'll pack your things up in a box
And today put you away.
I won't bother with a long goodbye
Because there's nothing left to say
There are no arms to comfort me
And there's nothing to believe
What I thought was love wasn't
Or else you wouldn't leave.
I've sat here and I've wondered
Why it matters not to you
I guess it really wasn't love
Or this would be something you can't do.
Just once I wish it was reversed
That it was you who wanted me
Because I know I'd change my mind
If you were holding on to me.
I'd tell you I can't leave you,
And if I go I need you to come
But those aren't the words you said to me
It simply was "you aren't the one".
You said I taught you how to love
Well I've failed you if that's true
Because love isn't something you can quit
It's something you can't help but do.
You say that this is best for us
How on earth can I agree
When the only thing I want
Is you standing next to me.
So now I know I was mistaken
God how it hurts to know it's true
So I'll pack your things up in the box
With my love and dreams of you.
The lonely girlÖ.
Standing all alone watching the clouds go rolling by
I watch as they unfold to pictures in the sky
Sadly every one seems to turn to the same thing
A picture of a lonely girl without a song to sing.
They almost look familiar -
is she someone that I know?
What ever happened to this girl
That makes her sorrow so?
What ever happened to her smile
I know she used to wear it every day
Cause I saw her walk among the clouds
And she didn't seem this way.
Maybe she was foolish
Got caught up in a dream
Only to discover
Love isn't what it seems.
Maybe she was hopeful
And held on a bit too long
Still never understanding
That sometimes love goes wrong.
Maybe she was faithful
thought she had something to believe
then had her heart broken
when she had to watch him leave.
Maybe now she's lost
Because she knows he's not around
Is that a raindrop on my face
Or her tears pouring down?
How come no one told her
You shouldn't love with all your heart
So then it doesn't hurt as much
When it all falls apart.
I watch the clouds go rolling by
And suddenly I see
The lonely girl up in the clouds,
Is a girl who looks like me.
I thought we had it allÖ.
Every time we touched
It was like electricity
I couldn't get enough
The need overwhelming me
I thought we really had it all
The love, friendship and fire
The passion that wells up inside
The unquenchable desire....
And now I feel so empty
I can't believe that you're not there
How do I just let it go
How do I just not care?
I ache to feel you near me
It's just killing me inside
I can't believe it's over
How could your love have died?
So much I miss our passion
And the way that we made love
It was every single dream come true
And every fantasy we thought of.
How I wish that you would hold me
Tell me everything's alright,
Saying that you feel it too
And be here loving me tonight.
COME BACK AND BE MY EVERYTHING
I need your arms around me
Iím afraid Iím losing you
You wonít let go of worries
And I donít know what to do.
All I know is when Iím laying
In my bed alone at night
Is that I want to save our love
And I canít give up this fight.
Maybe we were wrong
With some choices we have made
But I never thought weíd lose it all
And now Iím so afraid.
Wonít you reach your hand out to me
Pick me up from off my knees
Take the hurting from inside me
And end my heartfelt pleas
There are times I feel so lonely
My heart thrown into despair
But I pray if I keep trying,
This love can be repaired.
Everytime I think about you
My hands begin to shake,
For my entire world is balanced
On the decision that you make.
Iím losing all my hope
As time is passing by
I canít call you, I canít see you
So all I do is cry.
This is tearing me to pieces
I canít even clear my head
You are all that I can think of
I just pray your loveís not dead.
Please take this space between us
And bring it to an end,
Come back and be my everything,
My love, and my best friend.
I wonder if you look back and wonder where I am
I wonder if you think of me and remember all our plans
I wonder if your days seem to pass without a smile
I wonder if you feel that without me life's worth while
I wonder if your dreams are filled with memories
I wonder if your thoughts keep drifting off to me
I wonder if you smile when someone says my name
I wonder if you wish that our love could be the same
I wonder if you're sad when you turn out the light
I wonder if you feel like we weren't worth a fight
I wonder if you wish that she was really me
I wonder if you cling to my distant memory
I wonder if you feel like I wasn't worth the wait
I wonder if I reach out for you, would you say it is too late
I wonder if one day we can bare our souls
And tell each other truths that we both deserve to know
I wonder if you feel each kiss I blow your way
I wonder if you're blessed by the prayers I kneel to pray
I wonder if we'll meet and still see it in our eyes
I wonder if you'll see the truth beyond the lies
I wonder if you'll know that no matter what I say
that I still hold on to you and me, and it will always be that way
