"It's never too late—in fiction or in life—to revise." -Nancy Thayer

Moving cars passing by
With people going somewhere
Every person has a different future
But I'm going nowhere

I've got my feet stuck to the sidewalk
'cause I'm lookin' into your eyes
I can hardly breathe when I'm next to you
You take me by surprise

Your presence takes my breath away
And makes me gasp for air
Still, I need to see you
because I care

I feel like I can't live without you
But you're leaving me
I feel like I'll never love again
So why are you leaving me?

If this wonderfully painful feeling is love
Why are you leaving me?

I don't know if I can handle the pain
Or be able to breathe again

I'm standing on the sidewalk
with my feet stuck to the ground
But I feel like I'm stuck in the ocean
And I'm about to drown

So why are you leaving me?
If you care
Why are you leaving me?
You said you would be there

You let me fall in love with you
You always knew what to do

But now your echo is getting softer
And I'm no longer looking into your eyes
I'll never be able to stand near you
Or hear your wistful sighs

Now you're following your dream
And I could scream

'Cause I've got my feet stuck to the ground
And I can't make a sound.
