It was a short time. Such a short time I had you. But I believe that even a dozen lifetimes wouldn't have satisfied my need for you. My love for you.

I said hello I think I'm broken

And though I was only jokin'

It took me by surprise when you agreed

We already knew each other, had always seen each other at our worst and after the War seeing you at that bar in downtown Surrey, seeing you smile like you really meant it, I fell. I fell before I even got the chance to realize I lost my footing.

I was tryin' to be clever

For the life of me I never

Would have guessed how far the simple truth would lead

You knew all my lines

You knew all my tricks

You knew how to heal that pain

No medicine can fix

I was fake, at first. You always said that I was guarded, cautious about who I was with. Always the first to defend me, even when I didn't deserve it. And somewhere down the line, my walls fell. All the stones and bricks, and all the reserve and caution fell away. Gave in to even a person I begin to like. And for once, I really did love someone. For once, I just loved.

And I bless the day I met you

And I thank God that He let you

Lay beside me for a moment that lives on

And the good news is I'm better

For the time we spent together

And the bad news is you're gone

People say that within the last few months of life whoever is t pass on somehow begins to live better. Begins to live more fully. They are right. Even as I was becoming a new person, a better person, you became more beautiful.

Lookin' back it's still surprisin'

I was sinking you were rising

With a look you caught me in mid-air

Now I know God has His reasons

But sometimes it's hard to see them

We did everything together, we went to Venice to skydive, and to Mazadlan to cliffdive. We made love everywhere. And every time, be on top or bottom, I shattered. Into a million pieces and you would catch every fragment, and put me back together.

When I awake and find that you're not there

You found hope in hopeless

Your made crazy sane

You became the missing link

That helped me break my chains

I miss you. I wish you were here. I wish I could hold you. I wish a lot of things. But most of all…Most of all…


And I bless the day I met you

And I thank God that He let you

Lay beside me for a moment that lives on

And the good news is I'm better

For the time we spent together

And the bad news is you're gone

The bad news is you're gone...
