It Wasn't Just You


Ok baby, I’m the one left behind
Sometimes it’s them, sometimes it’s me
What should I say if someone asks about you?
You were more than wind blowing through the trees

You know my heart melted right in front of you
It’s not a northern fishing lake made to be frozen
The blood I left all around will dry up
It’s not something I can’t make again

I’m walking away baby
It’s not that I won’t fight for you
The words you fired my way
Made me think they were true

If someone asks me who I wrote that about
Don’t take it hard if I say nobody
You were something to me and you still are
But I’ve left room for a strangers heart and body

I was thinking about heartache
I can live on, I won't fall apart again
It won’t prove that I didn’t love you
It’s only for someone who has no friend

But I do, you know I do
There are so many, it wasn't just you

From deep inside a kiss
I saw the dreams of a lifetime
From far away now
I see what I hoped to find

I’m walking away baby
It’s not that I won’t fight for you
The words you fired my way
Made me think they were true
