I Can't Believe
I canít believe all you have been through.
Itís so hard to conceive how you fell out of the blue.
I canít believe there was ever a me-and-you.
I canít reconcile how anyone could do.
All those hurtful things that have happened to you.
Your casual smile is a memory Iíve always kept.
Within the blink of an eye, the years left me with a love I canít forget.
I canít believe how anyone could cause you pain.
Itís like make-believe in the chaos of thunder and rain.
I canít believe all you have been through
Itís so hard to see how anyone could do this to you.
I canít believe what my heart is telling me to do.
Iíve often wondered about what could have been.
Have you ever thought about how life would have happened
If we had found a place to begin?
I canít believe all the hurt you have been through.
Itís too hard to see how you came to this platitude.
I canít believe there was never a time I havenít thought of you.
