Choking back the awkward laughter
of another lonesome chapter,
you would sacrifice everything
to gladly stand within her shadow
even if you have to follow
where silence in the dark is deafening.

When you love someone
enough to keep holding on,
though you have to set them free
while you try to hide
how you are dying inside.
Hoping they will finally see,
you're never done
when you love someone

Sleepless nights of endless sorrow
will haunt the dreams of your tomorrow
with all the memories she left behind,
but now your focus is askew
because she stole a part of you
and so you wander searching for a sign.

When you love someone
enough to keep holding on,
though you have to set them free
while you try to hide
how you are dying inside.
Hoping they will finally see
that you are the one
who's still pressing on
'cause you're never done
when you love someone.

I know that I should try to find somebody else
but I don't want to.
Even if another tries to take her place,
they won't do,
when you love someone.
