Not Here

As I throw back another drink

I can't help myself but think

All that matters to me is you're not here

In those moments I don't feel complete

Letters missing in words that I speak

Need you to take away the pain

Make me feel the same again

Cause with a part of me missing

The silence becomes louder than ever before

Silence, I hear it like a roar

My heart isn't broken, cannot be broken

But it still hurts real bad

Never thought it could

If I did

Oh I should've

Not spoke a word when I passed by you

Kept to myself

Without a clue

My hearts turning

All different hues

Of black and blue

When I think of you

No nice shade of red

As I lie alone in bed

Not sleeping

Just breathing

Barely being fine

Cause when you're not here

A piece of me is bare

Need your support

Living off you like air

So that my black and blues will heal

And all the thoughts of you filling my head

Can finally become clear

With you near

So come cover me up

Don't wanna be bare

Wanna have someone to fill the emptiness

Need you to bring me bliss

And your lips

On my lips

Come stop me from throwing back another drink

So I won't have to think

About how you're not here
