I can't believe what i just heard
Could it be true
Are you the girl I thought I knew
The one who promised me her love
Where did it go
Does anybody ever know

[Chorus:]
How do you heal a broken heart
That feels like it will never beat this much again
Oh no
I just can't let go
How do you heal a broken heart
That feels like it will never love this much again
Oh no
Tonight I'll hold what could be right
Tomorrow I'll pretend to let you go

And were you ever what you seemed
Or was I a fool who fell in love
With his own dream
And now you say you want to leave
Start a new life today
Those words I thought you'd never say

[Chorus:]
Tonight I'll hold what could be right
Tomorrow I'll pretend to
Wake and put it all behind me
And find that I have finally found

A new life
In my soul
And find that I know how to let you go
You go

[Chorus:]
Tonight I'll hold what could be right
Tomorrow i'll pretend to
Wake and put it all behind me
And find that I know how to let you go

    sometimes, when we tend to love someone, we used to gave all that we could just for it to be able to last.. we're going to fight for it especially since we convinced ourselves that it is really worth fighting for.. but what we didn't realize is that, when we tend to love someone much more than anything or anyone else in this world, we started to lose ourselves with it.. and when the day comes that they are going to say the word goodbye, we'll find it very difficult to move on.. it is because of the fact that during the process of being overwhelmed with the happiness and love you felt for that particular person, you already let yourself become blinded by it.. and sometimes, for you to be able to move on, you have to pretend that you're okay even though you are not.. loving someone is easy, and letting go makes it difficult..

    when we're inlove we seem to forget about the rest of life facets. that we let our world evolve & spin on the one we love. that's why it's the hardest part learning you don't get back the the love you gave to the person. it's really, really bad. perhaps your consolation is the saying: there's not great pain that time won't heal... or that you'll get used to the pain that you get numbed.

    i agree with nicahabao, i mean my happines is just one step ahead of me...i can reach for it and grab it right away..i have my job which i really love with a salary thats no too big, but enough to make someone very happy...i have a place of my own... enough to spend the evening with some1 u love... food on the plate 3 times a day... but it's useless with no one to share it with...i know theres a lot of people who i can share it with but...it's different if u dont have that person u love beside u... i cant heal my broken heart wth money...or food...or clothes... only when u comeback to me...where are u anyway?

    Loving someone with all your heart is not an assurance that they'll love you back..! Because some people are not meant to be in your life,no matter how you want them to be..!
    Happiness is too far from me now,..but even if its near,I know its still hard for me to get there..!
    Coz until now,.I'm still asking myself,.." How can I heal my heart from all the pain that you have caused on it..?''
