I never learned to be lonely
I didn’t know how to be
Without a man, holding me free
Longing for romance

TOO GREAT YOU’RE TOO GREAT
MY FRIEND, IT’S TRUE
WHAT IF YOU HAD JUST BEEN
A SIMPLE LOVER
IT’S ME, NOT YOU
MISS YOU, I DO
THE MEMORY OF US TOGETHER

Life is a game that’s forever
Together we hoped to be
After the storm, swe-et and warm
Something was missing

What has become of us anyway
Why don’t we see eye to eye?
Wishing we could have been so much more
And I found a way…

I put myself through the test
You couldn’t last in the nest
Got to be more, wanting to soar
I closed the door.
