2011

Holding on that summer night, trying to stop your tears
I ended up swimming in a bucket of my own
I told you that I love you, that I don’t want things to change
I wanna be there for you

You promised I could always hide in your arms “where I belong”
When the world is dark and cold, as it sometimes is
And it often is these lonely nights without you by my side
But you are no longer mine

Deep down I knew the day would come when we would have to part
I just never knew that it would be this soon
And if you asked me then, and you could ask me again
I always thought that I would be the one to leave
I always thought that I would be the one

Seems that everybody’s leaving town
So just this once will you stick around?
I know that there’s a last for every first
So give me one more chorus and I’ll take another verse
I’ll take whatever I can get these dying days
Just let me look upon your face

Deep down I knew the day would come when we would have to part
I just never knew that it would be this soon
And if you asked me then, and you could ask me again
I always thought that I would be the one to leave
I always thought that I would be the one

I used to write you every day, sometimes even twice
But days and nights grew longer as I moved on with my life
You’ll always have a place within this healing heart of mine
As I watch you fly away

Fly away…
