left behind

though I can't remember all I've

left behind

and though I know I'm

left behind

I'll still go on

something's

left behind

back in the past that I've

left behind

and in this present that I'll

leave behind

there's things I thought I didn't need

and now by him I am

left behind

and now by me he is

left behind

by each other we're

left behind

and we can't look back, can't go back

to each other or the memories that were

left behind

or the people that were

left behind

the clear remembrance that was

left behind

now they're all gone

now even my friends are

left behind

and my family too is

left behind

all things I ever loved are

left behind

and I'm a cold, empty shell

and I know that I am also

left behind

just as by me others were

left behind

but I'm still

left behind

and I want to go back

but I am

left behind

and others are

left behind

we wish we weren't

left behind

now bring us back

we're

left behind

we were

left behind

we wish we weren't

left behind

now bring us back
