Why Am I Still Waiting

I still miss you more than ever,
But I'll never admit it,
Instead I'll pretend that I'm fine,
And watch you be with her.

She says she doesn't know why
She's with you but I know
Deep in your heart you Love her
And that's why I have to let you go.

Once not so long ago that was me
You held onto so tight,
That shining smile was for me
As well as the kisses you two now share.

I've been holding on and I don't
Even know why anymore,
So I guess this is one final goodbye
And I'll be on my way.

I just wanted you to know I've
Never lied to you, I tried
To be what you needed, but I guess
My love wasn't enough.

Why is it that you moved on
Right away and I'm still
Holding on? After all we've been
Through, but I guess it's over.

You know the sun still shines,
And the moon still glows,
But everything seems to've slowed
Down and faded since you left.

I wish there was a way to 
Let you know that
After all you put me through
I'm still in love with you.

But I know you don't want
To hear any of it,
So why am I still standing here
Waiting, always waiting?
