Goodbye Delilah

I’ve realized that you will never again be able to make me as happy as I deserve to be
Too much time has gone by and everything is turning into a distant memory.
And I know that too many things have been said
For us to ever be the same again.
I have learned to accept the reality that you will forever be in my heart
But I have to move forward, I need a new start.
I can’t afford to let another day pass me by
Without having the strength to say goodbye.

The sound of my lullaby has faded away
Along with my hopes from yesterday.
So many nights I wished to hear you sing that song,
The one the rocked me to sleep all night long.
But being able to wait for you to change your mind
Is not the way my heart was designed.
We have both changed from who we were when we first meet
But that doesn’t mean this is something I will ever regret.

Don’t think that I’m not going to shed another tear or two
That’s what I get for believing that kismet brought me to you.
But it’s time for me to set my heart free
And allow myself to remember who I use to be.
No more thinking about how I will look in your eyes,
No more waiting to open my door and find a surprise.
I did all I could to try and make you see
But maybe you were right and we just weren’t meant to be.

One day I will find someone who knows all of who I am,
Someone who will love me for reasons I won’t even understand.
But today I’m ok with it just being me
And trying to discover who I’m supposed to be.
I have found the courage to finally say goodbye,
To you and the sound of my lullaby.
