You might not understand,
but hey, I don't expect you to...

Time went by,
your thoughts didn't include me.
My thoughts, of you,
never really left.
Soon enough,
it was time to move on.

My heart had suffered enough,
and needed another to love;
I thought you'd do the same,
which drove me even harder
to find a way to fill this pain.

The plans we had made together,
we let slip through our
young fingers,
and while there were
others that thought
I was for them,
they lost,
and you won...

You did.

After you moved away;
after you had found
the arms of someone else,
to hold you like
I never would again.

You chose another life path,
and we quit talking.
I pretended as if you'd
quit breathing,
quit holding,
quit caring,
and I ignored you,
when you needed me most.

That sorrow will never fade.

Many years have gone by,
and I knew it was over,
but now,
we have a chance again.

You're where you are,
and I'm where I've always been.
Keeping the door open
in my heart;
a door to which only
one has the key,
only one has ever held the key,
I lost,
but you won.

I remember all of our best times,
were when our hearts beat as one.
The time is on us now,
and the decisions we made
so long ago
are going to come
full circle,
when we both realize
that I've lost,
and you've won...
