I skip half the songs in my iTunes
cause all of them remind me of you
and I can't stand to feel the pain
nor can I bear the feeling of my heart breaking

whether is be something sad and slow
or something crazy that we used to dance to
either way, I can't handle pressing play
can't handle being here without your smiling face

understandably, you had to go
your feelings changed and the door closed
but you still take my breath away
and you still make the tears fall down my face

I watch the clock, I count the days
I wait for there to maybe come a day
where you'll sweep me off my feet again
and you'll tell me that you never planned for this to happen

It's hard to breathe when my heart is skipping beats
hard to keep on going when I'm so blind that I can't see
what's up ahead, what's been misunderstood, or wrongly said
do you notice? do you see just what your absence does to me?

understandably, you had to go
your feelings changed and the door closed
but you still take my breath away
and you still make the tears fall down my face

I'm still waiting for you to come back
but you're gone for good, you've told me that
why can't I take this and let you go
maybe cause my converse shoe got stuck in the door
preventing it from closing, preventing strings from breaking
oh, no, they're only fraying

let's glue this back together, we can do it
people do it all the time, nothing to it
wipe the tears from my eyes and turn your head
I'm only dreaming, this will never really happen, will it?

understandably, you had to go
your feelings changed and the door closed
but I pray to God every night it'll open
and those little stars will smile down, i'm still hoping

you still take my breath away
and you still make the tears fall down my face
God, I gave you everything, you know
but your feelings changed and the door closed
