Welcome, Evie!

Beautiful song. I think it´s clear... she doesn´t love him anymore. He knows he´ll be sorry.

Your day breaks

Your mind aches

You find that all her words of kindness linger on when

She no longer needs you

She wakes up

She makes up

She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry

She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

You want her

You need her

And yet you don't believe her when she says her love is dead

You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

You stay home

She goes out

She said that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone

She doesn't need him

Your day breaks

Your mind aches

There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head You won't forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

Why is it that everybody else's first loves were so fabulous? Mine wound up in and out of jail for dealing, armed robbery, etc., and now he's missing several teeth and is raising a flock of kids in the hovel that drugs built.

If I were desperate, I suppose I could romanticize that this all happened to him because he lost me.

I'm not that desperate.
