What am I here for, Living in mis'ry, Now that you've gone from my heart ? That was my fear for You were my future There was no reason to part. 'Till I hope you change your mind And that somehow you will find You are meant to be my own I'll be lost if I'm alone I know that you remember All that you told me Times when you hold me so tight How could you grieve me How could you leave me Knowing your love is my light In your ear that should be Thoughts of your return to me I will be happy Patiently waiting Knowing then, that's why I'm here.
