I read a book on the black holes
And how they make all of the universe implode
I am an atom being drawn into nothingness
Can't pull my way out

I went to sleep a married wife
When I woke up, I was deserted and denied
You sent a postcard from your new mistress' mansion
On the posh side of town

The sky is closing in
The winds are getting cold
And we're not the same people now
As we were before

Tell me when did we give in
Tell me when did we let it go
I'm at loss from words, I'm choking
I just silently fall
Was I blind
Were you ever really mine

My mother tells me that I'm strong
My friends and children are my reasons to move on
Like my father, I move forward and I shake it off
'Cause that's what we do best

There really is no room for tears
Between the kids' flus and my job at the café
So I keep all the disappointments and betrayals
Stored as a lump in my chest

I didn't think I would survive
Thought this is it, my time is gone
I was lost out on the ocean
The way you threw away my oars
You faded right before my eyes
The man I used to know is gone
Sixteen years of sweetness obliterated to the core

I was yours
You were never really mine

The sky is closing in
The winds are getting cold
Will I make through this winter
Will I make it at all

Tell me why did you give in
Tell me why did you let it go
I really thought you meant forever
Thought you and me would grow old

What a lie
You were never
Never
Never really mine
