Good-bye to You


  • Lost Love

    Good-bye to You

    Stranded on a desert,
    All alone,

    I started to think I'd die,
    If you didn't love me,
    Like I love you,
    My heart began to hallucinate,
    Seeing things I wanted to see,

    Fantasy became reality in my mind,
    I saw what I wanted to see,
    I thought I needed you to complete me,
    Without you,
    My heart was torn in two,

    But, I know now that I was only pretending,
    And, I found a way out of the desert,
    I was woken from my reverie,
    Reality is where I need to be,
    Time to shut the book on my fairytale,

    I don't need anyone to define me,
    I define myself,
    No longer searching,
    Or needing you,

    I can make it on my own,
    I guess the truth is,
    I always have been able to,
    I just didn't see it,
    But, I can see clearly now,

    One last look over my shoulder,
    Just one last look,
    To say good-bye,
    To my dreams,
    And, to you.
