I watch you walk away from me
Without the slightest hesitation.
Oh love, won’t you stay for me?
Don’t leave me in starvation.
I did all I could do,
Put my heart on my sleeve.
All the hell I went through
Just to watch you leave.
For your affection is all I dared to ask.
You told me you weren’t capable
Of fulfilling this arduous task.
For your guarded heart it just wasn’t possible.
So I had no choice but to let you go.
I smiled and waved goodbye.
I could never let you know
how much for you at nights I’d cry.
The thought still strikes me every day.
You were the one that got away.
