This is hard for me to say.
I never want it to end.
But I knew from the beginning,
it was never if but when.
I’d give anything for another day,
But it’s wrong of me to keep you this way.

For when we were together,
Everything was beautiful and bright,
But I was never the one you wanted to hold at night.
Yes you called me beautiful, but the truth that I could see,
Your angel is something I could never be.
You’ve always wanted her more than me.

So now it’s time,
I can’t ignore the truth any longer.
I love you, I love you!
But your love for her is stronger.

Our love was like a candle,
the flame was so warm and bright.
But the love you share with her is more like the sun,
Its flame is everlasting and ten times as bright.

I must let you leave,
But before you go…
Please don’t forget how I love you so.

For when we were together,
Everything was beautiful and bright,
But I was never the one you wanted to hold at night.
Yes you called me beautiful, but the truth that I could see,
Your angel is something I could never be.
You’ve always wanted her more than me.

Now even though you are gone,
Our love will live on.
I won’t forget all the memories we share.
I’ll treasure all the times I got to have you there.
The little candle we lit remains in my heart still.
It helps keep me warm against the lonely chill.

So now it’s time,
I can’t ignore the truth any longer.
I love you, I love you!
But your love for her is stronger.

Tears fall down my cheek as I watch you go.
I whisper “I love you, I hope you know”
But you cannot hear me,
Or either you just don’t care.
For the one you love isn’t here but somewhere out there.
