how can i be lyrics – justine bennett

well i woke in the morning,
was it all just a dream
did i see you last night,
did i hear what you said to me
flashbacks and memories fly
through my mind
and i think of you now
from some far away time
but it wasn’t so long ago
you stood right there
and you told me you loved me
oh how much you cared
i don’t know what happened,
i might fall apart
who will pick up the pieces of my heart

chorus:

and then i see you, holding me,
loving me, there with me
and then i see you, you care for me,
you’re there for me, how can i be?

all of the music i hear now makes sense
the words cut right into me,
feeling my pain with me
knowing that just like this others have felt
but feeling somehow that they hurt so much less
time fills the void that sits right in the pit of me
life turns to color and dampens my misery
someday i’ll look back and laugh at myself
but someday is not soon enough
as i live through this h*ll

chorus:

and then i see you, holding me,
loving me, there with me
and then i see you, you care for me,
there for me, how can i be?

my mind wanders through memories
flooding my head
when you come in my room
and lay on my bed
my world stops for a moment
though nothings been said
oh i’d give my last breath
just to make it all right,
but there’s nothing to say
as we turn out the lights
i cry for you now like
i’d cry if you died
because to me your lost
if you’re not in my life

chorus:

and then i see you, holding me,
loving me, there with me
and then i see you, you care for me,
there for me, how can i be?
