Every single thing you say
Every memory you brush away
Every secret we've ever shared
Every adventure we've ever dared

Slowing down your words
Slowing down the moment
Keeping it inside me
Keeping it a secret

How could I have known?
How could I have seen?
That every word you whispered
Was a slow good-bye to me

Every single thing you say
Every memory you brush away
Every secret we've ever shared
Every adventure we've ever dared

Losing you was hardest
Staying away is worse
Resisting the urge to see you
Crying because it hurts

I hope that you are happy
That's all I've ever asked
I hope that when you miss me
You think back on the past

Every single thing I say
Every memory I brush away
Every secret we've ever shared
Every adventure we've ever dared

I've become much stronger
I've learned to live with loss
But seeing you walk towards me
All my strength has been forgot

And now I know I love you
Now I know it's true
And now that I have lost you
I'm losing myself too
