Bittersweet Company



I can see it everywhere 

And I can't pretend that I don't care

Seeing all this love and happiness

It only deepens my lonliness

I treasure this pain that hurts me most

As I try to make it through living like a ghost

Every night I tell myself we will never be

But my heart will never listen to me


You're the sun that will always brighten my day

And the storm that will always take me away

You're bittersweet company

A sad, lovely melody


There's no point in trying to hide

Because you've already seen this side

This love burns through my every vein

Pumped through this soul where it will always rain


This is one let down of the many in my life

Where all that is good ends in strife

You will always be the perfect one

You will always be my rising sun
