YOU

Lyrics written and owned by Chantele Delaine

I know that when this ends

I will again be alone

I don't speak from self pity

Or to be witty, oh no

 

And so, as long as I write this song

You won't be gone

But don't stay for free

You've already done so much for me

And my memories

 

Sometimes you're my hero

At other times, my foe

You're my mentor, occasional tormentor

Re-inventor of my soul

 

You are the collection found in my keys

Do you believe in me?

You're the how, what, when and why immersions

Who knew there were so many versions of you, to see?

To express me

 

I know that I'm full

Of unfinished plans, always calling a halt

All this waiting, eager anticipating

Is more exhilarating than the end result

 

You're always in my head

A daily destination to where I'm inevitably led...

...

...

You taught me to trust

In wearing things out on my sleeves

If I were to lose you

Then would I also lose self belief? 

I know that when this ends

I will again be alone

I don't speak from self pity

Or to be witty, oh no

 

And so, as long as I write this song

You won't be gone

But don't stay for free

You've already done so much for me

And my memories
