How can we explain that we're apart
When all we've known is being together
Time had made our love a work of art
So sure we were that nothing could change us
The dreams we thought tomorrow would bring us
Were fading away

Oh you, reassured hope and I believed
That never would our promise be broken
And now, I question what is yet to be
When all that's left of me is a token
Of dreams we use to build each day
You wouldn't stay

You don't know the very best part of me, baby
You don't know cause you went away
I can't believe, you want no part of me
(Ever) since you went away
Nothing quite the same in my life

I may be shaken by this night
But I know the truth will never mislead me
I, I have the love, I have my life
And even with your memories beside me
I know the strength inside me will guide me
All of the way
