How do I say goodbye when my heart won't let go?
When he's my whole life, the only thing that I know
Our love was in a realm that could be reached by no other.
There could be no world; it would not exist were we not together
But so many times I’ve held on with faith
Waiting, angry he’s gone but praying he’s okay
After each fight, a “sorry” and “you’re a good wife”
Watching him do it again; slowly sucking away my life
The love I gave, the high I felt, all inspired by him,
Are they all gone? Can I no longer grasp them?
No longer able to fight I now just nod in tears
Only ever wanting him to see my love; for so many years
When the last tears have fallen and I've released that empty sigh,
How do I let go? When there are no more words, how do I say goodbye?
