So you lost yourself in him
And he’s gone.
Leaving you just lost in the world
Hopelessly trying to hold on.
It seems easier than the alternative
You’re dodging your emotions
Hoping they will pass.
But when there’s only silence left
It comes in like a hurricane
Destroying anything in its path.
Causing a storm of tears
That nearly drown you.
You thought you could keep running
And the pain still found you.
Where do you go from here?
You can’t let him steal all that’s left.
You won’t have any pieces to rebuild.
Grab hold of something,
You’ll need that to heal.
Yeah, you lost yourself in him
There’s no shame in that.
But if you don’t start moving forward
You’ll find yourself straying back.
Then you’ll hate yourself for loving him
And loathe yourself for wanting him
Disappoint yourself for needing him
Even if it’s just for a minute.
It’s time to take the next step
Stop lingering in the middle.
He’s long gone
Don’t let him take you with him.
