lyrics

They say the storm will pass
The thunder will subside
But I’ve been losing sleep for weeks
And nothing feels right

I’ll say it’s for the best
That time will make things right
Still I cannot forget your face
The night I said goodbye

So I lie to myself
Say the timing wasn’t right
That you’re not my kind of guy
Oh this heart
Beats fine on its own
But there’s an aching in my chest
And I’m waking up alone thinking
Why did I let you
Go

I kept all our letters
I won’t erase a word
Our picture frames are empty cages
Our love’s boxed up in cardboard

I pass you on the street
You won’t meet my eye
I smile and wave hello although
It’s killing me inside

So I lie to myself
Say the timing wasn’t right
That you’re not my kind of guy
Oh this heart
Beats fine on its own
But there’s an aching in my chest
And I’m waking up alone thinking
Why did I let you
Go

You’re the only one I’ve ever loved
You’re the only one I’ve ever loved
Maybe you’re the only one I’ll ever love.

So I lie to myself
Say the timing wasn’t right
That you’re not my kind of guy
Oh this heart
Beats fine on its own
But there’s an aching in my chest
And I’m waking up alone thinking
Why did I let you
Go
