You said you needed space -
So I gave you space.
Made a space in my mind
Made a space in my heart
There was a you shaped space at my table
And a space shaped like you
By my side.
My hands clutched at the
Shadow of you standing in the doorway
Lurking in the hall.
My eyes blurred with looking for you
Only to see you everywhere.
In a world of chatter and noise
I heard silence, and all my words to you
I think I went a little crazy
When all I wanted was you.
My universe was darkened to a twilight world
While you found your place at
Someone else's side.
Now here's the thing. Your new love soon
Needed space, and you found you had a space
At your side.
No place to hide. No place to hide.
Then you came back to me for comfort
But the space I had for you was gone,
There's nothing here for you now.
How can your space be recreated
When you shook it off so freely,
And now it's gone.
We are gone. We are no more.
We are travelling on different paths
Towards different horizons,
And different space.
