Loving in two very different ways - you say goodbye and I say, stay.
I have the sound of you calling my name
I have the smell of you sewn into my heart
the heart that has been so empty
since you left
sometimes I knock to see if anyone answers
answers are all I have wanted
the candle light flickers
I see the reflection of myself in your eyes
you see me as a reflection of what you are not
my heart has built an internal life around you
you've built a life without me
you've taken my love - the best kind of love I have
I have been searching to get back to you just so maybe I can know that part of myself again
