Without You

By Carter Tachikawa

(Written for a special someone. They know who they are. I have no reason to tell the rest of you. Not for people who hate love songs.)

It's been a long since we last spoke
Even then, you didn't have much to say
Just a "Hello, I'm fine, how bout you?"
Before I could answer, you slipped away
Now I'm trying to get through to you
More I try, more you push me aside
Tell me, baby, what else can I do?
Without me, darling, are you all right?

If only we weren't so far apart
Cause this distance tears up my heart
If only we had more time together
So we could stay lost in love forever

Chorus:
Without you, I couldn't go on
Cause nothing would feel right
I need you, keep me going strong
You're all I love about my life
Life's got a long road ahead, baby
But with you, I'll make it through
Cause I don't know what I'd do
If I had to live without you

It's been a while since I saw you
But you left as soon as you came
I watched as you walked out the door
Wondering when I would see you again
So I wanted for you give me a call
And when you did, we couldn't say much
You have to know that it hurts, baby
Cause I'm falling deeper in love

Don't let what we have slip, baby
This gap between us drives me crazy
Don't let my silly words hurt you
You should know that they aren't true

(Chorus)

Don't let what we have slip, baby
This gap between us drives me crazy
If only we had more time together
So we could stay lost in love forever

(Chorus)

(Again, special dedication. Spur of the moment thing. Forgive me if it's not up to par. I have a rhythm to it, believe it or not. I'm sorry if you hate love. But I have to let my soft side out once in a while too.)
