Harsh words, an empty room
You left so soon
I didn’t want to say goodbye
You said you were doing the best thing
I said daddy please don’t leave
And I wasn’t ready for goodbye

It’s fifteen years later
And I still don’t know
Which way is up and down
My heart was shattered
That day in Denver, when
You never came back around
You never came back around

I tried and tried to save
Mommas heart from breaking that day
But it was too late
My sun rose and set on you
When skies were gray, you’d make em blue
So why did you say goodbye

Our life wasn’t picture perfect to say the least
But now I can finally see
That no matter where you are
No matter what you do
I’ll always have part of you
Inside of me
