You told me that you'd found a reason to stay.
The search was pointless anyway.
And here I was wishing I had still had mine
As I had said right from the start.

I'll let it hold me down, keep me unsteady.
I'm feeling selfish now when I've got plenty.
I'll hold a little more because it might be ending.
It was everything to me, but not anymore.

It's over and I'm regretting nothing.
It's over and I'm moving on.

When I told you that you had to leave
The room turned to black and grey.
I watched it all drain from your eyes.
I broke when you begged to stay.

Well, I carry that with me.
I carry everything with me.

It's over and I'm sure of nothing.
It's over but I am moving on.

I watched you leave through the side door.
You took everything and drove to Kingston.
Don't get me wrong: this is how it was meant to be.
I just didn't think that I'd carry that with me.
