I am trying now, to let you go for good
I know that you don't want me, that is understood.
I tell the world around me, that I will be just fine
But the truth is everyday I still wish that you were mine.
I may never know the reasons we threw it all away
But I hope you believed me, I wanted you to stay
I close my eyes and cry for you, no one understands
But you still hold my whole heart right there in your hands
The pain from deep inside me only worsens late at night
The one I used to turn to will no longer make things right
If only I could reach out and still find you standing there
But now when I stretch out my hand, it's left lonely and bare.
I miss you and I love you, how I wish you would return
They say we all have heartache, it's a lesson we should learn
I wish I could forget it, I wish I could be set free
From the memories all around that still imprison me.
It's been a while since I've seen your face
My heart just feels like an empty space
It's been awhile since I felt your touch
I never knew I'd miss it this much
It's been awhile since I heard your voice
But I know that I have no choice
It's been a while since you wanted me
I wish we could be like we used to be
It's been a while since you held me tight
But I feel your arms around me almost every night
It's been awhile since we've made love
So I spend the nights alone staring at the stars above
It's been awhile since you held my hand
I'm looking all around but it's alone I stand
It's been awhile since I felt you near
But I close my eyes and it's like you're here.
It's been awhile since you said "I love you"
Sometimes I wonder if it was ever true
I lay in my bed at night
And I don't make a sound
Other than the pounding of my heart
There's no other noise around.
And then somewhere on the wind
As faint as a slight breeze
I hear your voice calling me
And my heart is put at ease.
I only hear you say my name,
But the memories then onset
And I hear every word you've said
Since the day that we first met.
And then I close my eyes,
And I can clearly see your face
Smiling like you used to
With your arms open for embrace.
I can see that look again
The one you always made for me
Like I was the most beautiful girl
Your eyes would ever see.
And then I feel your presence
The touch of your finger tips
Your warm breath on my neck
Your soft and pressing lips.
It's like you're there with me
Even though I know you're not
It's like you still love me
I guess for just this moment I forgot.
Maybe you were right,
We've been over from the start
I can think it in my mind,
But don't believe it in my heart.
Maybe I was wrong,
I thought you were sincere
When you told me that you loved me
But you're no longer here.
Maybe I was blind
When I saw that glimmer in your eyes
I thought that it was there for me
It turned out to be a lie.
Maybe I'll get over you
And know it was meant to be this way
But right now I just miss you
And I wish that you would stay.
Maybe you gave up
Because you thought it was right
I wonder if you miss me
When you lay in bed at night.
Maybe you'll remember
how we could feel it in a touch
There's no way we could fake that
But I guess it doesn't matter much.
Maybe I'll forget it
I know that life goes on
But I know I'll always love you
And I'll wish that you weren't gone.
Is it true I'll never see you
Or ever touch your face
Is it true that you have left my life
Gone without a trace?
Is it true you don't want me
That I'll never hear your voice
Is it true it's really over
And that I have no choice?
Is it true that I can't touch you
And we won't make love again?
Is it true that I've lost the man I love
And the dearest of my friends?
Is it true I made you unhappy
When I only tried to please
Is it true you aren't coming back
When I can't believe you'd leave?
Is it true that you're not bothered
That you really don't miss me
Is it true you have given up
And this is how it's going to be?
Is it true you didn't mean it
When you said you loved me too
Is it true I should just give up
Because you want me to?
But still Iím holding on.
I know you say let go
But still I'm holding on
I just can't find a way
To believe that you are gone
You are all I ever wanted
My heart is still with you
When I gave you everything I had
It was forever through.
I believe that true love
Never has an end
And you were more than my love
You were also my best friend.
I gave you all my trust
And my faith was all in you
I held on to everything you said,
Please say you love me too....
I don't know how we got here
How did we come to this
I didn't see it coming
I couldn't feel it in your kiss.
I can only hope and pray
That your love for me is strong
That you'll find your way back to me
Because it's where you belong.
I will love you always
There won't ever be a time
That I will stop hoping
That someday you'll be mine.
WHAT KIND OF FOOL AM I?
What kind of fool am I
To think that you loved me
You never even really cared
And now thatís plain to see.
What kind of fool am I
That I ever would believe
That weíd find happiness as one
And that youíd never leave
What kind of fool am I
For trying to hold on
To someone who was never mine
And now wants to be gone
What kind of fool am I
For crying over you
And begging for my love to stay
While youíre saying we are through.
IN THE ABSENCE OF YOUR KISS
There are days I feel so lonely
Even though I know youíre there
And although you may say you do
Sometimes I think that you donít care.
There are times I feel confused
And donít know how you feel for me
One day I think itís love,
And the next, it just canít be.
It seems like you want me
When the time is right for you
But when you donít want me around
There is nothing I can do.
Sometimes I think your shamed
Of the feelings that we share
Like you want no one else to know
When you have me there.
And maybe itís just me
Am I reading into this?
But sometimes I can feel it
In the absence of your kiss.
At times you seem so distant
And others youíre so near
But Iím afraid to tell you,
Because itís losing you I fear.
WHEN YOUR HEART IS ASKING WHY
I see the sadness in your eyes
And I know I put it there
Although I may not show it much
I swear to you I care.
I donít know whatís come over me
But Iím feeling so depressed
I know that Iíve been far away,
That doesnít mean I love you less.
My mind is clouded with decisions
That I know that I must make,
But I have to do this carefully,
I donít want to make mistakes.
I wish this could be easier
I canít stand to see you cry
And I wish I had the answers
When your heart is asking why.
I am asking you for time
And a little breathing space
I know there will come a day
Iíll wipe the teardrops from your face.
YOUR HEART IS LETTING GO
You can tell me that Iím wrong
You can say that itís not true
But I can feel you pull away from me
And I know that we are through.
You can tell me that you love me
And how you need me so
But I feel your warmth withdrawing now
And your heart is letting go.
You can promise me the heavens
You can try to steal the moon
But I can sense that you are leaving me
And the time is coming soon.
You can talk about our future
We can even make a plan
But I can tell our time is ending
And youíll never be my man.
MY HEART MUST BREAK
I donít want to hear your reasons,
I wonít even ask you why,
And donít tell me that you love me
How can you look at me and lie?
Did you think that you could hide it
Were you sure Iíd never know
Or did it matter not to you,
Were you prepared to let me go?
You say that she means nothing
It was only a mistake
And you didnít mean to hurt me,
But still, my heart must break.
You say I should forgive you
It was nothing more than lust
But I can not forget this
And you canít regain my trust
You tell me that youíre sorry
And you donít need to be free
But when you laid in bed with her
You didnít even think of me
I canít tell you how this hurts me
My soul now has a void
I thought my heart was safe with you
But now it is destroyed.
