Today

It wasn’t meant to be part of the plan
To let someone like you slip through my hands
To stand here while my head is spinning round
To call your name and then to hear no sound

Too many words I can’t forget
But not enough said to forgive today
Too many hours that I regret
But without you how can I live today?

I still see there on the floor the tears that I chose to ignore
A few short steps away
And very soon they’ll start to dry like raindrops from the sky
Or they’ll be swept away

The air I breathe inside this place is you
The walls I touch have you inside them too
I close the window just to hold you in
I can’t let you escape me once again

Too many words you can’t forget
But not enough said to forgive today
Too many hours that I regret
But without you how can I live today?

I ask the mirror to reflect the thing of beauty that I wrecked
Before you turned away
Does the world need more than one, one more slowly setting sun
But I can’t look away

Today – as I listen to the rain
I hear the storm clouds shouting out your name
Today is all I have now you are gone
And tomorrows that go on and on and on

Too many words you can’t forget
But not enough said to forgive today
Too many hours that I regret
But without you how can I live today?

If I could I’d turn back time just to take your hands in mine
And fan this dying flame
I close my eyes but cannot rest without the face I once caressed
Oh how I wish that it was yesterday
Wish that it was yesterday today
I wish that it was yesterday today
