Like a child lost in the wilderness
I knew not where to go
Surrounded by the emptiness
Of a love that left me cold
I stumbled through the darkness
Of nights that had no stars
And days that had no sunshine
To warm my naked heart
Like a bird in flight
Brought down by stones
From an unknown assailant's sling
A stranger took you from my arms
And I lost everything
In days to come I nearly run
Out of ways to stay alive
But through it all, I never lost
The will to survive

(chorus)

But I'm not over you
And I doubt that I'll ever be
But I've learned to live,
And you won't be the death of me, oh no
Yes, I've learned to live
And I'm doing well,
But I'm not over you

Like a thief who takes just what he needs
And he leaves the rest behind
You took the heart right out of me
And you left me with my mind
I've almost gone out of it
And at times I thought I did
But gradually I've learned
that you're someone
I have to learn to live with

repeat chorus
