Every Now and Then

By Carter Tachikawa

(My first song in a long time! (Really) Wasn't supposed to be romantic but I guess it kind of is. I was thinking back to some old times and came up with this.)

I can't believe it's been so long
Still feel my tears making their way down
Sometimes, I hit a moment of truth
Pick up the pieces that are lying around
I wish I could see you next to me
'Cause there are times I hate being lonely
Oh sure, I've grown up and moved on
But I still wish that you would hold me

Sometimes you can't help yourself
Sometimes, you gotta take off and fly
I may be getting older but every now and then
I sit up in bed and I wonder why

Chorus:
Why did you have to walk out that door so soon?
And go far beyond my reach like the stars and moon?
Or maybe I'm too blind to see
That you're there, standing behind me
There are still times I don't know what to do
There are still times I feel lost without you
I'm wiser and I know healing time will fly
But every now and then, I don't understand
The meaning of the word 'goodbye'.

I never thought I'd feel so confused
Never felt like I'd be thrown away so fast
But I guess it would happen sometime soon
And happy moments become a part of the past
Losing you wasn't something I was proud of
I'm still hoping you're the shadow behind me
My life is a mess and I've hit the cold ground
So won't you step back in and try to find me?

(Chorus)

Every now and then, I get a little tired
Every now and then, I get scared
Thinking I have you, I turn around
Only to find that you're not there

Every now and then
Every now and then
I still hope you'll come back to me again

Sometimes you can't help yourself
Sometimes you gotta take off and fly
I may be getting older but every now and then
I sit up bed and I wonder why

(Chorus)
I'm wiser and I know healing time will fly
But every now and then, I don't understand
The meaning of the word 'goodbye'.

(Remember, if you want this song, ask me FIRST! I don't have music and I can't sing. I just write lyrics. Hope you like it. If not, don't flame. It doesn't help me at all.)
