So here it is, all those words that you think should never be said, because the truth is that you broke my heart when you walked away, and after having come this far I know you’ve left for the last time
I watched you from the distance as I buried my heart in that box underground, it took me the longest time just to figure out where, when, or how, now I’m looking around to find it so I can try to give it away again, confession is I was watching you from the very beginning
But the words you’d never say again would never be enough, I cared for you from when it first began, but I guess you’d rather be gone, surely you can tell me how long will it hurt every time you come to mind, every time I can’t find the words for the lives we’ve left behind
I can’t recognize this place, the look in my eyes or my own face, I waited so long for what I pray was not simply fool’s gold, fell off the edge in a free fall with nothing left to hold onto, but I guess you’d understand that now
Now we’ve both become so much more or less, turned out and aimless in this wandering wilderness, I can only pray you are well and finding your own way, that the love I couldn’t show you will follow you through the night and rain
You meant so much more than I think you’ll ever know, more than you would have believed, it’s true I loved you so, and I didn’t want to leave, but now that you’re long gone there’s no reason to stay in this empty room all alone.
