On the night that we met
You said that you wanted
Something more from me

And it was all that I could do

I remember your face, like a child
The way that you blushed and
The way that you smiled

And now it's all that I can do
And I wake up feeling new
You're so much more than I ever knew

So I think of all the years spent alone
It's like you're searching for something
To make you feel whole

Like a half of something else
Like you're half of something else
Just a fraction of yourself

Don't take it so hard, we did what we could
There were no easy answers
To be understood

And it was all that we could do

We're the only ones who knew
Now all I think about is you

The way that you screamed
The way that you cry
The way that you wipe your eyes
That fall against my side

The way that you told
Told me I was wrong

And the way that you'd sing
When you'd hear a song

And the way that you answered
When you knew I was gone

Now I tell you I would die
If it's what you'd rather see
And I know it's not clever
I just want you with me

I'm only half of something else

    Looking for all those years for the person who is your "other half" but when you meet them, you or they are taken so you can't be with that person.
