lyrics

these sad, soft eyes
that want to cry
you've been so alone
i feel it too, i know

i see in you
a soul so true
and it hurts my heart
to see you pulled apart
making choices
out of doubt and fear
with their empty voices
silencing you

i gave too much
to get their love
it never was enough
i never felt the touch

i'll learn to stand
i don't know when
but i will be damned
to do it all again
making choices
out of doubt and fear
with their empty voices
silencing mine

and time is passing me by
this is the time of my life
and now that i've made it mine again
i'll never let it get away from me

i see in you
a soul so true
you've been so alone
i feel it too, i know
