as consciousness arrives, i see dark gray skies
trying shake the sleep away from my eyes
i know this day will be incomplete. that part is true
i know that because it'll be another day without you.
i reach for your picture, yes its hidden somewhere near me..
because truly without you, that i can never be.
i see a picture of us laughing, so happy..
and i also know that these days the guy that makes you laugh isn't me..
i replay our memories, i go to that place..
where all i think about, all i ever see is you face
but these days all i see are shades of grey..
its been like that, always like that, e'er since you went away..
i hear a knock on the door, i know that will never be you..
i see her face, i wish i was looking at you..
i hold her hand, i wish i was holding you..
i know i will eventually love her..i pray what i say is right
soon the colors that were gone will return to my sight
i pray that im right, i wish what im saying is right!
but can i say one last thing, something i know is true
until my heart stops beating, i will always, always, wish for you..
