It's been a long, long time since I looked into the mirror
I guess that I was blind
Now my reflection's getting clearer
Now that you're gone things will never be the same again

There's not a minute that goes by every hour of every day
You're such a part of me
But I just pulled away
Well, I'm not the same girl
you used to know
I wish I said the words I never showed

I know you had to go away
I died just a little, and I feel it now
You're the one I need
I believe that I would cry just a little
Just to have you back now
Here with me
Here with me

You know that silence is loud when all you hear is your heart
And I wanted so badly just to be a part of something strong and true
But I was scared and left it all behind


And I'm asking
And I'm wanting you to come back to me

I never will forget that look upon
your face
How you turned away and left
without a trace
But I understand that you did what you had to do
And I thank you

    I think everyone can relate to these lyrics..... just apply them to your own situations. Something you lost, but wish you didn't.

    "You know that silence is loud when all you hear is your heart"

    i love this line. it's describes so well how i feel right now. i feel so alone sometimes, and it's just me and my thoughts and my heart. this song is so perfect.

    Fantastic and somewhat unnoticed tune. This one could have made it as a single.
