Once there was you, now you’re gone
I thought I knew, turns out I was wrong

Once what we shared, brought nothing but light to my life
Now what I bare, is too dark to fight

Once I came to my senses…

Once you had left, I held your place
Forsaking the rest, I clutched every trace

Once I saw you, but it was a trick of the heart
It wasn’t you, It wasn’t me, It was us apart

Once you cared for me, I know you did…
Least that’s what I believe

At least Once I hope is was real for you?
At least Once I hope you felt regret?
At least Once I hope that you loved me…
The way I once love you?

But I see much clearer now
Least that’s what I believe?
