lyrics

As we’re standing here encircled.
By the amber coloured trees.
You ask what is the purpose,
And if there’s something wrong with me.
I’m thinking is it really.
Is it really a surprise.
And no matter how hard I try,
I can’t look you in your eyes.

If we stand here just one moment,
Can we stretch it a little more?
This de-cision will leave us broken.
It won’t be like be-fore.

I take your hands in mine,
And I tell you how I feel.
You don’t even cry.
It doesn’t appear real.
I can feel your grip is failing.
Feel your strength flowing away.
I can see you heart breaking.
As you listen to what I say.

I’m afraid that I am leaving.
And there’s not much you can do.
I think I will be happier,
And I believe that you will too.

I’m feeling worse than ever.
And I dare not even think.
She’s falling and I let her.
As it slowly starts to sink.

I hope that someday soon,
You’ll be smiling like before.
And you’ll look up at the moon.
And you think of how we were.
