Without you I would be fine, unaffected,
Ready to go on, if only my heart would let me
My heart and I, we argue alot when
Thinking of life without you.
I tell myself that no tears would fall,
But my heart says no river would compare
I tell myself that my smile would be undefeated,
But my heart says no conquest would be greater.
I tell myself that I would feel just fine,
But my heart says no pain would ever be equal
I tell myself that the world would look the same,
But my heart says that my vision would deceive me.
I tell myself that my mind would be at ease,
But my heart says no turmoil would be more deranged,
I tell myself that my soul would soar,
But my heart says no crash would burn more.
I tell myself that another love I would find,
But my heart says that no lie would ever be more distorted
I tell myself that life would go on,
But my heart says not on your own.
I ask my heart how do you know, how could you
Possibly think that you are right?
My heart says because I once had sacrificed
Myself for your happiness alone,
But when I returned the suffering I saw
Was more than I could bear,
I have given myself freely once more
To someone you hold very dear,
But this time you see I'm not coming back,
In his hands I will remain.
