I count the ways I let you down.
I use my fingers and toes but I’m running out.
Clever words can’t help me now.
I gripped you tight, but you’re slipping now.
When did the rain become a storm?
When did the clouds begin to form?
We got knocked off course by a natural force and we’ll be swimming when it’s gone.
And I remember your eyes were so bright. When I first met you, so in love that night. And now I’m kissing your tears goodbye And I can’t take it, you’re even perfect when you cry.
All the pain you try to hide, shows through your tired eyes.
Let them go, let them fly.
Holding back won’t turn back time,
believe me, I’ve tried…
