I fell in love on a dark, cold night
when I fell asleep alone on a creaky old bus
and woke up in your arms,
“Shh, you’re safe now. you’re safe now…”
You said it was the best night of your life
You saved me, handed me
the world on a silver platter, but
some things are slipping like sand through my fingers
now that your hands aren’t there
and I’m not sure if i can really do this
But i’ve not got a choice.
In the back of a party,
behind the heat and flashing lights
you said you’d always remember the
best year of your life.
And you didn't need to say more.
I tasted the goodbye when your lips
touched mine, because
maybe it had been the best
but now you were off
to go find better…
And in that moment I knew that
even if I fell asleep tonight, wrapped in
in the morning i’d wake up all alone.
