Somehow

Today’s just another day
It’s on my mind again
Will I have the strength it takes to say
Those words when she walks in
 
It starts round 2am
She’s home and needs her man
This time I can’t be him
Is this where the end begins
 
I don’t wanna walk out that door
But I’m starin’ out my window
Thinkin’ maybe life could mean more somehow
What is it we’re waiting for
Do we jump or brave the wreck we’re headed towards
Surely I could be something more somehow
 
3 years changes everything
180 in 3 years
Can’t change the past or get those back
Must go forward now my dear
 
She takes me by the hand
Crying, but this was planned
This, my ultimatum
This is where the end begins
 
It’s time for me to walk out that door
No more starin’ out my window
I’ve gotta know that life can mean more some how
There’s nothing else to wait for
She’s made a choice and now I have to make my own
Time to go and be something more some how
 
Once a flame and now we’re left without a spark
Thought we’d take it all but the race is won, And WE are stuck in park
I’m so done with livin’ all alone, together in this dark
Can’t see what’s round the bend, but this chapter’s come to end…
 
It’s time for me to walk out that door
No more starin’ out my window
I’ve gotta know that life can mean more some how
There’s nothing else to wait for
She’s made a choice and now I have to make my own
I’ve gotta know that life can mean more some how
