Down to This

I've been standing here for so long
staring down at the stars on the sea
the wind a companion to comfort my reverie
as I question the things I've done wrong

Like loving you
was that so wrong
because it's only weakened me
this loving you for so long

I fell down the other day
stumbled on a word that brought you back to me
it must have choked off my air, so there, killing me without so much flair
and so I laid there still

Loving you was never easy
it came without warning before
but it doesn't leave so easy
wish I would have known this before

I fell in love with you through a kiss
a kiss of bliss that forever now I have missed
which leaves me emptied as it comes down to this

Alone, alone
so decidedly alone
