here is another little ditty, my second foray into the art of writing lyrics. just put it together tonite, and i want everyone to be as absolutely critical as possible. thanks.

count the eyes that are watching us
and just go with it this one last time
dont look at me with that knowing glare
but just listen to what i have to say:

its been three long years babe
and im not sure when its enough
sometimes i wish it could go on forever
and sometimes i just want to give up
you are so far away right now
i just wish for this one night
that i could hold to in my arms
and not let you out of my sight
i am standing here on my own two feet
looking back on what has been said
when everyone outside thought it was perfect
it was completely wrong in our heads

i am sitting here in my own little space
looking at nothing but thinking about everything
i realize at this moment i need you the most
but youre nowhere to be found

you are nowhere to be found

its been three long years babe
since that one fateful night
when you took my hand in yours
just before i gave up the fight
we were so young and content
not ready for the coming storm
we say we can handle the pressure
but at once i knew we'd just conform

[some little bridge thing here, maybe the chorus again...]

its been three long years babe
and youre now walking down a new path
the dark trees crowd around you
and i cannot protect you from their wrath
im not letting you be all that you are
i get the feeling im holding you back
but i know that once i let you go
that its one thing that i can never retract

i am sitting here in my own little space
looking at nothing and thinking about everything
i realize at this moment i need to let you go
and now youre nowhere to be found

you are nowhere to be found
