    You would think by now, I would know my way around,
    I shouldn't miss you so badly, I should be on familiar ground.
    How many more lonely years, must meander by,
    until I learn the lesson, it does no good to cry.
    What manner of iron will, must some people possess,
    to be always looking forward, to never accept regress.
    Perhaps if I was willing, to let someone take me by the hand,
    they could show me a happy place, in this unfamiliar land.
    Perhaps I'm only homesick, for all the joys that once were mine,
    I must accept that they and you, belong to another place and time.
    But I know that deep within my heart, there's a place where only you reside,
    and when the pain of loneliness comes, it knows that is where I hide.
    So if sometimes it seems to you, I'm clinging to the past,
    it's mostly because I can't yet accept, that our love didn't last.
    No matter how hard I try, I've yet to get over you,
    for the part of me that's still alive, believes you love me too.
    Maybe there will come a day, when that part will finally die,
    and feeling strong with a heart reborn, a new love I will finally try.
    And what a splendid day that will be, when I awaken to discover,
    I'm happily learning a great new land, with a great new friend and lover.​
