I loved you and I let you go.
I loved you and I let you slip away.
When the truth of my love - simply told
Would have made you stay.
Foolish pride caused me to hide
My love - my love for you.
You loved me, you tried.
I fought you. By guarding my heart -
I made you go away.
When deep inside I yearned for your love.
I yearned for you to stay
You were the one good thing that ever came to me
Flew to me - cleaved to me.
I clung to you and tried to control us, without telling you why I did
I pulled you close and crushed your wings.
I stifled you and trapped you
To survive - you crawled away.
You were always gentle - always soft and warm.
I froze because I didn't know how to love as you did...how to loosen the
reigns on my self-control.
I chose safety - I got loneliness
I told you - without using the words. I know...I made you leave.
I loved you so much
You were my world.
Oh - how could I let you go.
Through the rivers that flow from the pools in my eyes
I court a memory of you - it still holds the power to make me smile.
I remember the sight of your eyes as they stared into mine.
Searching - surging with tender love.
The taste of your lips, the warmth of your smile
The shades of your voice - a tone for every mood.
Your voice battled the sight of you -
Because it made me want to close my eyes and listen
To the voice that beset my soul.
I want you. I had you. I loved you and I let you go.
Yesterday I thought
Perhaps I'd caught
A glimpse of you.
My heart stopped then raced...
I touched a shoulder.
It wasn't yours.
A confused stranger.
I'm a stranger to my soul.
I'm the girl who betrayed me.
The girl who let you leave.
