waves of you

I have lost the only thing that makes me special
The lighted candle in the window frame
I have lost the only thing that makes me weary
The thought of you back home again

Grains of sand are sticking to my feet
Waves of you are falling down my cheek
I cannot pretend that all the things that happened were for good
All I can say is that I hope you understood

God be my witness I tried to stay true
But something's changed now with how I feel about you
I cannot pretend that all the things that happened were for good
All I can say is that I hope you understood

There's never an easy way to part
Never a way to completely shield your heart
A loss will stay with you until you let it go
Let it change its course, let it grow

I see you through the fog
You are standing there on your own
I couldn't talk
I couldn't meet your stare at all

I know that it's my fault that you're hurting this much
The ghosts have forgiven
But we're losing touch

Grains of sand are sticking to my feet
Waves of you are falling down my cheek
I cannot pretend that all the things that happened were for good
All I can say is that I hope you understood
