I walked away
'Cause I fell out of like not love
I’m thinking of you now
Where I stand
Waiting for the perfect plan
To spark a flame

So fragile are the lives we lead
So simple are the words we need
So few and yet so far between
What you want and really need

I sleep alone
Better that than lie in bed
I’m only lonely now
For in time
I will find the one I seek
When I’m done searching

So fragile are the lives we lead
So simple are the words we need
So few and yet so far between
What you want and really need

If you can think that it’s been easy
You don’t know how much it grieves me

So fragile are the lives we lead
So simple are the words we need
So few and yet so far between
What you want and really need

Though time can heal
I don’t need an hourglass
To feel I’m mending
I see the signs
Soon I will be on my knees
Starting over

So fragile are the lives we lead
So simple are the words we need
So few and yet so far between
What you want and really need

I walked away
'Cause I fell out of like not love
