Will you be the arms,

To catch me when I fall?

Will you be my wings,

So that I can soar?

Will you be my solid rock,

When my world is trembling?

Will you be that brick,

On which my life I'm building?

Will you be my love so true?

For I can find no one like you.

I can still remember,

The day we said goodbye,

When I stood there at your faded tracks,

When you left me without looking back,

My voice died and my tears fell,

To your shrinking back I could not tell.

You were the arms,

That caught my when I fell,

You were my wings,

So that I could soar,

You were my solid rock,

When my world was trembling,

You were that brick,

On which my life was building,

To me you were my love so true,

Cause I could find no one like you.

Years had passed before fate reacted,

And I met you again, in a way most unexpected,

From a distance I saw your back,

In my memories, your fading tracks,

In desperation I cried out to you,

You smiled at me, your smile so true,

And so casually, you said hi,

My answer to you was an anguished why.

Why couldn't you be the arms,

That caught me when I fell?

Why couldn't you be my wings,

So that I could soar?

Why couldn't you be my solid rock,

When my world was trembling?

Why couldn't you be that brick,

On which my life was building?

Why couldn't you be my love so true?

Cause I haven't found anyone quite like you.

Your smile died, your voice turned cold,

Your words struck me, like a slap too bold,

'I thought I loved you,' you said, 'but it was fleeting,

'My heart had fallen for another I was meeting.'

Then a voice called out and I saw her,

It was clearly her that he held so dear,

Again we parted ways, you and I,

But this time, it was I who said goodbye,

I left you staring at my fading tracks,

I left you without looking back.

For you would never be the arms,

That would catch me as I fall,

For you would never be my wings,

So that I could soar,

For you will never be my solid rock,

When my world is trembling,

For you will never be that brick,

On which my life I'm building,

For you will never be my love so true,

And it is time I let go of you.
