You lay here beside me, yet so far away.
The distance between us grows bigger each day.
Every moment, each thought, is of us together.
But slowly I realize you’ve let go of my tether…
Floating, I’m lost. Not quite up. Not quite down.
I feel my heart breaking, not making a sound.
I long to just hold you. Touch my hands to your face.
To tell you I LOVE you!!!
The wrong time, the wrong place.
I can’t stop these feelings…to turn off my heart.
I look in your eyes and my world falls apart.
I’m better than this! I can be JUST a friend!
But I can’t tell myself this is really the end.
So, I smile and I laugh so you think I’m alright.
In my dreams, in the dark, your face haunts me at night.
How do I learn to be whole all alone??
You’ve been half of my heart for as long as I’ve know.
The pain I have caused…the mistakes I have made!
NOW is the time that it all is repaid.
Now for the first time, I see my true fate:
To know what love is…and to find it too late.
