lyrics

What do I do, now that I've lost you?
Where do I go? Oh, I don't know.
There's just a hole where once was the heart you stole.

What do I see? I see you without me.
Carrying on, with me long gone from your heart.
You were so cool, now I just feel like a fool.

Do I hang on? Do I let go? How do I carry on with my life?
I feel like all hope is gone, and that's stabbing me like a knife.

I thought that you would stay with me, be happy and free,
But I failed to see that you'd already left me behind
Both in your heart and in your mind.

So what do I do, now that I'm no longer with you?
And where do I go? Oh how am I supposed to know?

Wherever I go, whatever I do, I always find traces of you
I'm haunted by all that was, and now I am struggling because

I thought that you would stay with me, be happy and free,
But I was too blind to see that you'd already left me for dead
Both in your heart and in your head.

There was a time you'd smile at me
And our hearts would beat wildly

But now it breaks my heart as I realize I'll never see your smile again.
And add to that, I'm starting to think, I'll never see my smile again.
Oh no!
