Verse 1
Where were you when the blizzard hit and my wings were torn?
Where were you when the grave was freshly dug but I couldn't mourn?
Where were you on the nights I watched her laughing at his antics?
Where were you when my world broke down but I couldn't be weak?
Pre-chorus
This life I have forces me to be strong,
And I've learnt to love being independent.
But sometimes I remember that it's been way too long,
Since someone last asked me how my day went.
Chorus
Don't you know how much I wish that you were there?
Can't you hear my silent pleas for just a little care?
Well, if you cannot be the star in my darkest night,
And if I learn to smile without you by my side,
Then there will be no room left for you in this heart of mine,
In this heart of mine.
Verse 2
Where were you when my fingers ached from working too hard?
Where were you when the nosebleeds always seemed to start?
Where were you when the cityscape was changed to tiny lights of distant towns?
Where were you all those years when the world was pulling me down?
Pre-chorus
This life I have forces me to be strong,
And I've learnt to love being independent.
But sometimes I'm tempted to cry when things go wrong,
And I can only stare at the heavens where my father went.
Chorus
Don't you know how much I wish that you were there?
Can't you hear my silent pleas for just a little care?
Well, if you cannot be the star in my darkest night,
And if I learn to smile without you by my side,
Then there will be no room left for you in this heart of mine,
In this heart of mine.
