From day one, I loved your being
Now I see your true meaning
We loved and we laughed through it all
I never thought I’d see us fall
A lifetime with you, would have sounded great to me
But now summer’s ending, and it’s time to watch you leave
I struggled and hurt as you faded away
I wish I could have found a way to make you stay
I remember the days when I was your first and last love
But now all you do is push and shove
I wish you the best with all you will do
It’s just hard to grasp the absence of me and you
You have a new life in your new town
It’s easy for you there, where I’m not making a sound
I make the drive down every now and then
In hopes of running into you, old friend
We tried to mend and mold back to what we knew
I thought it would work, but I didn’t have a clue
You come back to our hometown for the holiday
Little did I know, I’d soon not want you to stay
With every step you took, my heart broke more and more
But now the secret uncovered, makes me want to slam the door
Even though it hurts, I know I deserve better
Because you’ve left me here with the pieces all shattered
As the days pass by, I see a new me
When the dark fades away, I’ll finally be free
