You Gave Me Strength Again

I wrapped up your memories in the quilts

Surrounded by the scent of your hair

And the stinging feeling of guilt

I see your hair flowing all around

And you don't even make a sound

But the first impression had me so captivated



Another day behind my former self

And another night with my true identity

Gathering dust on the shelf

I wanna reach out to touch you baby

But I haven't been able to find myself.....and lately

I've found all my attempts at loving you negated



(Chorus)

I'm standing in the distance

Standing on the cold streets alone

I've loved you for such a long time

I only wish you could have known



A touch of confusion and the bitter distaste

And enough painful memories I just wanna erase

And I'm struggling to find it in my heart to fight

And came soon enough that I realized

You were always someone I needed

In my life



Right here right now this distance is getting larger

And in this moment being away from your voice

Is only getting harder.

But I'll never forget how far you've come with me

And now someday you'll finally see

That I'm making a vow for you....for us tonight!



(Chorus)

I'm standing in the distance

Standing on the cold streets alone

I've loved you for such a long time

I only wish you could have known



I'm sorry that it didn't end up the way we dreamed

But I know that we really did believe

Sometimes love can work in funny ways and when it comes to you

I've never given up this chance, to say that I love you
