Open wound, this heart of mine
Giving up, too hard to try
I loved you long, I held you close
I need you to know, you need to go

I'd hold your hand, but i'm too afraid
The permenant scars, they won't fade
I miss you now, and I don't know why.
I'll turn away, as you start to cry.

I know things will never be the same
But I'm not the only one who changed
I'll no longer keep holding on
To a love that I believed was strong
But for a while, if it's okay with you
I'll lie to myself and say it was true
That I should still belong to you

I call your house, the phone just rings
I hate you but I can't stop remembering
Those simple conversations, your blue blue eyes
The way they looked at me, and how it felt so right.

The pain it hurts, it steals my breath away
I'd wipe your tears, but I just can't stay
You're beautiful, in everything you shine
It'll take a while, to know your not mine


I loved you so, but I can't hold on
I wish I could, but I'm just not strong
I hope you know I would die for you
But tonight I can't be your fool.

I'm emotional, as you can tell
But I'm here to say I wish you well
What will come of us, yeah I don't know
But I let you fly, now let me go.
