There You Were


There You Were

I’d shut myself off from the world
Locked the door and thrown away the key
Promised myself never again – didn’t need the pain
But then there you were.

Time to focus on me now, forget about the beautiful girls
Shut my heart, shut my eyes, so I couldn’t see
Smile and laugh when approached but always would refrain
But then there you were.

Discover the truth now, the real pieces of me
Delve within, so deep the darkness surrounds
No place, no time – I couldn’t feel a thing
But then there you were.

Believed that what’s done is done, to let it be
What once was, never again to be found
The love, the happiness, the joy you would bring
… and now here you are.
