I’ve been sitting here, just thinking…
How I wish that you were here.
And the pleasure you once brought me-
Just knowing you were near.

And the love light I saw shining,
When I looked into your eyes.
Then I start, and look around me,
And I sadly realize…

That all happened long ago… I can’t believe you’re gone.
I see you everywhere I look, in our once happy home.
I wake up calling for you, I just wanted you to know-
I guess I can’t accept the fact, you left me long ago.

I should have known it from the start-
Our romance could not last.
Water under bridges…
And those secrets in our past…

Relationships you build on lies-
Can only bring you pain…
I sit here all alone tonight-
And hear this sad refrain…

That all happened long ago, I can’t believe you’re gone.
I see you everywhere I look, in our once happy home.
I wake up calling for you, I just wanted you to know-
I simply cannot grasp the fact… you left me long ago.
