NOTE: this song is written from several perspectives; these have been defined as: M (male), F (female), and B (both) - the shared perspective.

M: Whatever happened to the little girl I once knew?
Is she falling apart? dying of a broken heart?
Is she out there on her own searching for truth?
F: Is he holding to himself or giving away to someone else?
I guess I wish that I knew
M: Was I wrong?
F: Was he right?

B: I think I know and now it's time to fight for
The one I love is out there I know
M: I hope she's thinking of me
As I walk these streets alone

M: She's everything I wanted
She's everything I need
She's everything I wanted
B: But I'm afraid to let you in
Yeah I'm afraid to let you in

M: It's raining out tonight - I hope you're doing all right
(Honestly the first thought that's entered my mind)
F: Do you remember that day in December?
Or a flatbed truck in the fields beneath the moonlight?

M: I shut my eyes
B: There might be embers in the ashes
M: I dream of you and me
B: Don't clean the fireplace out yet
M: I think there's a way to repair
B: There might be embers in the ashes
M: We just need to start again

M: You're everything I wanted
You're everything I need
You're everything I wanted
B: But I'm afraid to let you in
Yeah I'm afraid to let you in

M: Can't you see what you're doing to me?
Don't you know what you're doing to me now?
Can't you see that I'm crying?
Can't you feel that I'm dying?
