I’m so much more than meets the eye
How could you have said goodbye?
I don’t understand
I thought you were my promised land
Just tell me why

I cannot bear to be apart
How’d you leave knowing you broke my heart?
Now you and I are no longer
And just when I’d thought we’d never been stronger
You said goodbye

There are plenty of fish in the sea
But I’d hoped you were the one for me
I’d cherished our love, now all is lost
I’d erase our goodbyes at any cost
But I can’t live a lie

You never were one to linger
You had me wrapped around your finger
I’ll do my best not to cry
At least I can promise to try
Though I fear my heart has died

Whether good or bad I don’t yet know
I can’t believe I let you go [OR] I have never felt so low (please help me decide this!)
Now that we don’t exist
You can’t tempt me with one last kiss
‘Cause now there’s no such thing as you and I

How’d you give up something we never really tried?
Just tell me why
You said goodbye
But I can’t live a lie
Though I fear my heart has died
‘Cause now there’s no such thing as you and I
So I blink back my tears while staring at the sky
Realizing you'll forever and always be in my mind


The author's comments:
I realize this is not the typical arrangement of a song, but I like the stanzas :) I have chords and a tune to go with it. I think it would be cool to be able to submit chords and/or videos of a song being played/sung on Teen Ink. What do you think?

You aren't defined by what your situation is, you are defined by how you face the challenges that are given to you.

You have a great emotional feel with this. I would love to hear what it sounds like with the chords and the tune.
