And I remember your eyes were so bright,
when I first met you, so in love that night.
And now I can't move on,
because we danced to all our songs
up to midnight all alone.
Started crying while I was sleeping,
waking up and reaching out to a bed
as empty as the heart inside my chest.
I don't know how to be something you miss,
I never thought we'd have a last kiss.
You make me weep and wanna die,
just when you said we'd try.
You're tearin' me apart, every, every day.
I can't get these memories out of my mind.
Counting back words to when you said goodbye.
This is what "I don't love you" feels like,
And I feel the pain like it's new.
I can't get over it; I just can't put out this love.
There's no one that comes close to you,
could ever take your place.
I'm about to lose my mind,
you've been gone for so long.
I'm running out of time.
I am damaged at best,
like you've already figured out.
I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing,
with a broken heart that's still beating.
What do you do when you look in the mirror
and staring at you is why he's not here?
I still see your reflection inside of my eyes.
The pieces of my heart are missing you,
the face I came to know is missing too.
Perhaps the worst is that I ever let you go.
I will go down with this ship.
And I will make sure to keep my distance,
say "I love you" when you're not listening.
Because I'd rather pretend
that I'll still be there at the end.
