I did not know
that pushing you away
was the worst thing I could have done.
I spent my life, hiding in the shadows, if someone came my way
I looked through them.
I didn't know, pushing you away, was a grave mis-take.
I'd do my best to play the part of an extra, not needed nor important
keep my head down go my way and never looked back.
There was nothing for me to hang on to so I didn't stay in one place for very long.
Just a person out in open water. Ohh. That was until I met you.
You pulled me out of my watery state.
Filled my head with thoughts that I would think of all day.
You pulled me out of the crowd
said hear me out and gave me your affection.
I didn't know that this was love.
It felt so different than anything else
I ever felt in a long time.
You made me feel like I was someone
who had a role in action
You made my spirit felt warm inside.
But just like anyone else, I didn't know how to continue on,
this new feeling you've given me and show you I knew what it was.
My past haunts me in the night, it got so bad I didn't know if I wanted
to love anymore. Oohh. My thoughts of you began to slip.
My eyesight
unclear and drifting.
My love is fading away. I had to leave. I couldn't stay.
I needed to push you away.
I said my slow painful goodbye. It felt I died inside. I didn't want to leave.
But I knew there wasn't any other way. Ohh.
Though you helped me feel safe.
You gave me a home and love. I will and always be with you. In here.
Oh. Ohh. Ohhh(Why).
I did not know
that pushing you away
was the worst thing I could have done.
I never meant to hurt you
And I thank you for what you've done for me but
I didn't know pushing you away was a grave mistake.
