I held your note closed to my heart

And cry out all that’s left in me.

I look back to the start,

I knew that you weren’t for me.

Home alone wasn’t the plan right?

But why did you have to leave?

Feels like I’m going to die right now

With your last note held to my heart


Tears dropping, my heart’s breaking

Knowing that you’ve found another girl.

“I’m sorry baby but I can’t control my feelings

So I have to let you go back to your world.”

Was it worth being with me from the beginning?

Like it was worth the time you were my first kiss?

Bittersweet memories are starting to drift away waiting

In the dark corner of the room I’m staying.


“You’ve been the best thing I’ve never had in my life

I will always treasure you as a piece of my favorite song.

She may be my girlfriend, but it’s never a goodbye

You gave me a purpose to smile, a reason to say hi.”

Because I let you be involved in my business

Doesn’t mean you can let go and leave me heartbroken.

Because I fight with you every time we’re home

I will always be the one that’s left stone cold.

As much as I wanted to write back

My heart wouldn’t let me do so.

As much as I want to hate you this time

My mind told me to leave you alone.

As much as I want to say I’m sorry

A broken heart is hard to heal.

As long as you’re happy with her

Time for me to pack my bags and go.


“You are the ray of sunshine in the morning

You are the stars shining at night.

You begin my day with the perfect light

You end my day with the song of love.

Don’t let anyone fool you like I did

You deserve to be happy in peace.

Be the bigger girl no-one has seen before

Be the reason what you’re doing here for.”
