He walked up right next to me
Took the breath right from my lungs
I knew I wouldn't get it back
I never did

It's not the first time this has happened
It happens even when I just think about him
I guess that’s what happens when you fall in love with someone
And he doesn't even know your name

I’m getting used to it though
At least I’m prepared for the feeling now
I really don’t like that feeling, it’s hard to explain
Mainly just emptiness

That’s what he does
He leaves me empty
He has all my breath
All my thoughts
And all my love
