Verse 1

Everything's crumbled to pieces.
It's like the aftermath of a hurricane.
My heart's been squeezed dry now.
It's like a desert where it never rains.

Pre Chorus

And I remember how you used to be years back.
That's why I know now what it is that I lack.
I remember how I used to be years back.
And I'm ready to move forward, my bags are all packed.

Chorus

But I'm leaving behind a piece of myself
That nobody besides you ever had.
And you've left behind the you I knew.
You seem so rational, I'm glad.
Guess we've been apart for so long
That I didn't even notice the changes,
Didn't see the barrier between us grow this strong.
Baby I didn't notice the changes.

Verse 2

Gave into all our fears and doubts.
Now I spend the dark nights regretting it.
I haven't forgotten a single look.
You're still hidden in my heart beat.

Pre Chorus

And I remember how you used to be years back.
That's why I know now what it is that I lack.
I remember how I used to be years back.
And I'm ready to move forward, my bags are all packed.

Chorus

But I'm leaving behind a piece of myself
That nobody besides you ever had.
And you've left behind the you I knew.
You seem so rational, I'm glad.
Guess we've been apart for so long
That I didn't even notice the changes,
Didn't see the barrier between us grow this strong.
Baby I didn't notice the changes.

Bridge

You're single and I'm lonely
And I'm thinking if I'd only
Held on tight
Then maybe you'd be here in my arms tonight...

Pre Chorus

And I remember how you used to be years back.
That's why I know now what it is that I lack.
I remember how I used to be years back.
And I'm ready to move forward, my bags are all packed.

Chorus

But I'm leaving behind a piece of myself
That nobody besides you ever had.
And you've left behind the you I knew.
You seem so rational, I'm glad.
Guess we've been apart for so long
That I didn't even notice the changes,
Didn't see the barrier between us grow this strong.
Baby I didn't notice the changes.
