Through It All

So, here I go, I’m going out on a limb, will you catch me when I fall.
And when my world crumbles to pieces, will you stand by my side through it all.
But now that everyone has gone away.
Will you be there to say, it’s okay.

Anything is possible, why won’t you listen to me?
And yet you say, it’s just not meant to be.
It was all a mistake, which you don’t regret.
So I guess it would be easier to simply forget.

But how can I forget, what my heart longs to remember?
And accept that nothing last forever.
The memories I don’t want to erase.
The past I’m not ready to face.

Is this what you call fair?
When I was the one who was always there.
To live a lie, and say goodbye;
When you still can’t tell me why.

You said you’d already found what you’d been searching for.
And yet you kept coming back for more.
I was with you, I gave you the attention.
I believed in things I’d rather not mention.

Feels like I’m starting all over again, with a heart that has to mend.
A new beginning made from pieces of my end.
You have to save me, I don’t know what to do.
I can’t handle losing you.

How can you leave me alone in an oblivion of night?
Then sit back and tell me it just felt right.
I want to get things back to how it used to be.
Every moment without you lasts an eternity.

We’re living in a world where dreams don’t come true.
You don’t know the hell you put me through.
I’ll never show the part of me that can’t let go.
Maybe we’ll be friends again, I guess we’ll never know.
