I should have said, this is not what we want to do,
I should have said, I do not want to feel the pain,
That we both will soon be going through.
I should have taken a deep breath,
And then I should have saidÖ
You donít know what you donít know,
But I do.
I should have said that I know that Iím not right,
I should have been patient,
I should have held you tight,
Now we both are alone on these cold nights.
I have walked along your road before,
I have tasted the bitter sweetness,
That at the time seemed to fill my hollow,
But no more.
Iím everything and nothing,
Iím a shadow on the floor,
Iím where you used to be,
Nobody stands behind me anymore.
I should have said nothing,
That would have said it all,
The feelings that Iíve said before,
Would have been enough to stop our fall.
But I ranted, and I raved,
And yeah, Iím so right,
And that is what I carry in my back,
Keeps me standing up so right.
I saw you, years from now,
Last night in my dreams,
And you were happy,
Not sure what that means.
But I hope, yeah, I hope,
That years from now, we both have what we needed now.
The things we needed now, that neither could provide.
I should have said,
That I am a human being, I am flawed and I am perfect,
And I miss you.
