I saw you across the street leaving the bar-
you had one too many drinks, so you stumbled to your car-
fumbling with your keys telling the guys that you’re ok-
trying to drink away the pain caused by heart break.
You sat there in your car as you waved your friends goodbye-
and when the coast was clear, you begin to cry.
You opened up your wallet and saw what use to be-
a picture of a love lost, a perfect family.
So much you want to say but it feels like a waste of time-
“she won’t believe a word I say, she’ll think I’m only lying.”
You’re wondering how to convince her to forgive and take you back-
but truth is you haven’t forgiven yourself for letting her go like that.
You have trouble expressing your emotions, you’re trying to drown them in a cup-
with women coming a dime a dozen it’s hard to give them up-
Still not over her…
You’re crying out to her but she can’t hear you-
she only sees your issues-
she can’t hear your issue.
You behave nonchalant when she’s around-
but deep in your heart it’s breaking you down-
with every sip of the cup, you are starting to drown-
I see you and I hear you.
You turn the key to start the engine-
and drive down the road with a cloudy vision-
although it’s clear skies there is something that’s missing-
you’re searching to find it while slowly drifting-
right off a clip, you’re fingers are slipping-
I reached for your hand while tightly gripping-
you said, “let me go, my soul is missing”-
I saw you, I heard you, I found you.
