Arm’s length distance between you and me
But a vast expanse, worlds away, in my heart
No hope left to go back to the start
Where were we then? What happened to us? Why this path?
Thought I’d never give up, us against the world, no looking back
Breaking my heart to think of life without you
On my own, half of what I thought was whole, only one - not two
But to go on living a lie is killing me
Mistakes were made, prices were paid, no one knows as good as we
What the pain was like, the thousands of tears cried, the times no one could see
True love breaking down, moment to moment, day by day, year after year
Until nothing is left but what we started with- our brokenness, our baggage, and fear.
