lyrics

I wake up and miss your smile
You've been gone for a while
I cling to my self denial
As I watch the clock dial

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Tonight I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But we can't turn back the tide
Now the days are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home

Sunlight floods the morning sky
Finally I close my eyes
And in my dreams you're nearby
Seeing through all the lies

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Today I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But I can't turn back the tide
Now the nights are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home

The evenings grow dark & cold
Without you here to hold
Your story remains untold
Will you get to grow old?

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Tonight I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But we can't turn back the tide
Now the days are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home
