Thought you walked on water
Thought you had it all
Didn’t know you would leave me
Didn’t know you would fall.

Off of the ledge
So far above me
You fell to the ground
I fell to my knees.

So hard without you
Can’t face it alone
What could have gone wrong?
I’m now on my own.

So captivating
Your voice and your touch
I fell so hard
But, I wasn’t enough.

Nothing’s the same
I don’t understand
Why you led me on…
It was part of your plan.

You got what you wanted
I’m broken apart
I’ll never be right
Should’a known from the start.

Now there’s no chance
To make the repairs
You’re gone forever
I sit and stare.

You never intended
To stay here with me
You were just marking time
Always knew you would leave.
