someone worth saving

now I remember how many days you were waiting
probably hated seeing my love for another not fading
saying little bits of how you felt about me
paving the way for me to say and pray now I'm caving
laying around hoping you might have found
I'm someone worth saving
the day you know how far the way I'd show how hard
through anything I'd go to where you are
show you you'd know you were my shining star
the silver lining part of my clouds now
the day you found out how
much I care there wherever you are no matter how far
we're apart the feeling is still bare but who cares
if you knew the truth what would you do
would you say you knew and you felt the same way too
look into my eyes chest fall and rise beside
the only one that ever made you realize
there was nothing else you needed greeted
by a moment getting heated
would you look into my eyes and have something to say
or would I look into yours and watch you look away

if you were here would you have the same fear
would you cloud my judgment or make me see clear
if you were hear would you echo my heart
talk to me the way you did when we were far apart
if you were here would you walk away
would you shake your head and tell me you had nothing to say
if you were here would you say you barely spared me a thought
well I guess it doesn't matter if you were here cause' you're not

it's hard for me to say what hasn't already been said
bled the truth from a pen to let it out but instead
instead of feelin' better I can't get you out of my head
I know their sick of hearing about the same lame failed plan
I write as deep as I can but I'm not sure they really understand
I subconciously hope it will all fall into place
wake up one morning seeing the smile on your face
and this stupid waste of thought I try real hard to erase
but longing's hard to forget it's a bittersweet taste
mostly bitter though sad but true
I know that you like that song I like it too
it's funny things like that always remind me of you
and lead me back to the path of life that leads away from you
I'm sick though sick of the what if its fate's
is it too late's and should I try to wait's
plate's already full but I keep on eating
it's one of my traits
don't know when to stop don't know when to quit
logic dictates that I should give up on you now
but it's never as simple as that is it

if you were here would you have the same fear
would you cloud my judgment or make me see clear
if you were hear would you echo my heart
talk to me the way you did when we were far apart
if you were here would you walk away
would you shake your head and tell me you had nothing to say
if you were here would you say you barely spared me a thought
well I guess it doesn't matter if you were here cause' you're not

I'd be lying if I said this is the last song about you
more will come but I'm thinkin' pretty soon
they won't be about how much I miss you
they'll be about how I'm sorry your goin' through the same shit too
your turn to lay still and blue and stew in your own fear
your turn to write a thousand songs that I'll never hear
goodbye
