Where Did You Go?

You had me in your arms but we both had other plans
I melted at your sadness
And I knew I had your heart

It was only for a week
But a week changed everything
I would never come within
A canyon’s reach of you again

Even when we laid together
Naked and entwined
Who grew the distance?
I felt you leave

I tried to trap you
Tried to please you
Tried to ignore my breaking heart
Tried to take care of myself

I let you go
A hundred times
And I cried
A hundred times
And the farther away I go
The closer I seem to get to you

You’ve called me back from the edge of death
My pulse quickens at your name
I’m trying
All the time
But I just can’t seem to leave you.
