Here Without You

A love song I wrote while on a plane journey. It's about the heartbreak of a young woman and how she longs to be with that one person again.

I wake up today to darkness
I wake up today to silence
I don’t know how I got here
I don’t know why I’m lost
Did I say something wrong?
Did I say something out of place?
Get me back in your game
Or am I completely out?
But I just have to find my way back soon,
And I just have to find you again

Because-
I don’t want to be alone without you
I don’t want to live a life that makes me cry inside each night
For every tear, for every smile
You’re the reason I’m here today and
Here every other day.
Here without you…
I’m here without you…

I open my eyes to crowds around me
Every where I look, I just see you
But it’s not you.
Thinking back to all those times
you’d hold me and promise me you’d never leave
Then why am I standing here in the rain
Just waiting….just waiting…

I don’t want to be alone without you
I don’t want to live a life that makes me cry inside each night
For every tear, for every smile
You’re the reason I’m here today and
Here every other day.
Here without you…

 I remember that night
I looked into your eyes
Promised you I’d love you till the end
And I’m waiting today
Hoping and wishing you’d turn up
Hoping you’d be the one to say…

“I don’t want to be without you
Don’t want to reach out and cry your name again
For every word, for every kiss
You’re the reason I am here for you today
For you forever…”

I don’t want to be alone without you
I don’t want to live a life that makes me cry inside each night
For every tear, for every smile
You’re the reason I’m here today and
Here every other day.
Here without you…

I’m here
Without
You.

The End
