When I Walked Away

I knew you were there
By the door

I was too scared
To look in your eyes

I walked away in selfishness
And felt no feeling at all

But now I'm only hurting
From what I didn't say

Wishing that I talked you
Out of yesterday

Because now here I am
Holding your cold hand

Wishing I was there for
Just one more day

I was so greedy
And too upset to talk

Now I regret each step I took
That led to your death

You crashed on the pavement
And people tried to save

And when I got the call
All the pain came and stayed

Now what I have
Stuck inside my heart

Is all the words
I would have said

"I am sorry"
"I was wrong"
"Will you forgive me?"

But now I'll never know…
