  • Music:

granted

i didn't cry when you left
i didn't mourn you at all
i guess i always thought you'd come back to me
and time has shown what a fool i've been
and now i mourn the loss of you
the nights of drinking and sharing
the warm body in the bed next to me had more meaning
i miss your form and your laugh and your hair
i thought i was a given
i thought we were in love
and i suppose i was the one in love
but i couldn't protect you from the storms
and i never blamed you for closing the door
i wish i'd had one last kiss
something to hold over the years
as i realize that you are gone
and you are not coming back any time soon
so i should stop waiting to hear your car
and the knock at the door isn't going to come
so i can turn the stereo up as loud as i want
i didn't try to take you for granted
i never wanted you to feel more needed than wanted
i just didn't pay enough attention and i was so wrong
and i wonder if you know it wasn't what i meant
i cry over the image of you laughing in my head
i finally started to let it go
only a year after it went down
i don't know what to expect now
i don't know how i'm going to move on
i will compare every woman to you
and i will see you in passing in the shadows
and it will distract me
and maybe i should have told you then
told you that you meant worlds to me
that you were the only thing that made me smile
back then when things were rough
you could always make me laugh and feel safe
and there was so much i didn't give you
and so many things we should have talked about
i have to leave those regrets behind
and learn my lesson for the next time
because there is always a next time
even though you broke my heart
we all know i will try again to find love

so it's not always going to be about doc. pink inspires me. she says it so well and i take pieces and try to say them a different way. same as i've done with a list of bands and artists. i don't know what it is about her new CD that resonates so much with me, but it does.

frankly, anything that makes me write is good in my book.
