What Can I Say

what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
and i see you walking out the door
what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
and i see you in a restaurant
with the other woman
what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
and i can no longer roll over 
and wake up to your face in the morning sunlight
and what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
and i'm sitting here holding 
the only picture i have left of you
in my lap,and ice cold tears
rolling down my sunburnt cheeks
what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
when you leave ever so silently
never even saying i'm gone
i couldn't give you that long goodbye kiss
or even a hug
you just left
and the words i love you left too
what can i say
when the words have left my mouth
and you no longer choose to stay...
