Left Behind

You left me here once again
With nowhere left to spend
You’ve got all the time in the world
But please don’t take it

I don’t think that you can see
What this does to me
But now it’s like I’m not affected
Please give me back some of my time

Before everything changed for the bad
Did you know that I thought you could shine?
These days I’m not so sure if how you make me feel
Can be covered up with a lie

You left me here once again
I thought you planned to stay
You’ve got time to spend
So why don’t you be with me for a day?

If a day is all you want
Then you can take it
Just one day with you
Lets me have a lifetime of memories

Before I felt your unknown pain
You were just a person, all the same
But when you let me in
I didn’t want a way out

Such little words could explain it all
How I loved you, how I had fallen
You held me up and dragged me along
I didn’t mind as long as I could stay strong

You left me here once again
I didn’t know what to do
All I know is that I’m yours
Please don’t let me go
