    Gregory Porter - Water Under Bridges


    This one broke me
    And the pain is unbearable
    It like someone has stole my soul
    It even sounds terrible
    I don’t know if I’ll ever recover
    Cause right now I want no other
    So I sleep cause then I can dream
    Dream of her back in my life, my Queen
    But when I’m awake
    Dealing with the heartache
    It sometimes is more than I can handle
    More than my heart can take
    I loved but never like this
    Signed and Sealed with a kiss
    I just can’t wait for this feeling to pass
    I’m just not sure how long I will last
    They say it will get better
    I just wonder when
    This has me at the bottom
    And I need it to end
    I can no longer live in make believe
    I can no longer pretend
    I can no longer wear that fake smile
    That blank meaningless grin
    I’ve lost that pep in my step
    The pride in my stride
    I’ve bottled a lot of these feelings
    Kept them on the inside
    But I need to release
    I can’t hold it in no more
    As stand here, my tears hit the floor
    I guess the point is if it’s meant to be
    Can hold love, you have to set it free
    And I keep a little hope that my love
    Will someday come back to me.
