Trembling Blue Stars – She Just Couldn't Stay lyrics

Sometimes a dream with haunt me all day
I walk around feeling something has changed
I catch myself thinking you feel as I do
Like somehow the dream is haunting you too
But I know the longing
Is mine and mine alone
I keep forgetting
That I'm in love with a ghost

The person you were
I know you're not her
She went away
She went away

I still want to say
"Why did you change?"
When I know full well
There's no need to tell
The person you were
I know you're not her
She just couldn't stay

All of those letters of pain and love -
Did we burn too bright, too bright to last?
Were we destined always for a broken heart each?
That we're now worlds apart
Sometimes it seems

When I'm around you
One thing becomes clear
The person I think of
Every day is elsewhere
