    How can I feel the turmoil?
    …The boiling fire inside my soul
    It takes control of me like no other.
    I can’t stand the thought of you gone knowing in my heart is where you belong.
    But you hurt me…
    disappointed me…
    a pain that stabs me
    deep down into the depths of my soul…

    I call out for salvation to rescue me from the pain that I have endured.
    For to endure such pain I can’t take it no more.
    So I can’t have you…
    so I have to let you go…

    well go and never turn back…
    walk away and me I beg you to forget…
    my eyes hurt from the site of you…
    and I…
    well I am no misty gray.

    How can I love you then not have you…
    How could I need you and then let you go.
    Will we ever love again…that I do not know.

    I can’t stand the thought of you loving another.
    I can’t stand the thought of sharing you with another…
    but I can’t stand the thought of you being gone…
    because I love you…
    I love you so much that I hate you.
    You brought a pain that no woman should endure…
    a sadness that I pray
    once gone shall stay gone for ever more…
    ...my bright shiny days are now gloomy and desolate…
    my tears are like the sea…
    flowing quickly and salty
    as I taste them on my mouth…
    the same mouth you once kissed…
    you once touched…you once loved.
    Oh how can this be…
    I love you so much its killing me…
    …And I hate you for allowing me to swallow and move on…
    to take this pain all alone.
    To be strong by myself...
    and to know that I will find no one else that I could love like you…
    who will love me like you did I cry…
    I cry and I cry
    how can my whole world turn upside down
    how can I forget what I thought was so beautiful
    knowing that it could never be…
    how can I be so silly to know that you once loved me…
    now knowing that I cannot have thee.
    What am I suppose to do…
    …for now my whole world is misty blue.
