Carrie Newcomer – The Prelude lyrics
It's a prelude to goodbye
When you close your eyes
You didn't see the signs Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong

Maybe I thought I had met my match
But maybe I'm not that strong
I'm all right I'm just fine

I've been hurt harder than I've been hurt this time
It's a shame you can't take words back
Cause they hang in the air, they linger and that's a fact
Words can be arrows, they can be windows

They can do so very much of mean so very little
Maybe I'm just amazed that I could feel thins hard
Maybe when I fall these days, I only fall so far
It's a way of letting go, when you steel yourself
For some kind of trouble, and cut your losses low

And you smile like it's no big deal
Like it's one more misjudgment
In the way that you thought you'd feel
But I'm not finished I'm not done

Maybe I've just started, maybe I'm only numb
Maybe I'm just amazed that I could feel this hard
Maybe when I fall these days
I only fall so far
