What I can do

 

To stop thinking of you?

To stop remembering you?

To stop caring about you?

 

In other words:

 

Measure the depth of the ocean.

Ride a burning comet.

Stop being all that I am.

 

I promise, I tried.

Believe me, I can’t.

This is in God’s hands,

He’s holding my heart.

 

Never again to contact you?

Make no mistake,

No song and dance about it,

That is something I can do.

And you have it, my gift to you,

The only present you ever requested,

I give with gratitude.
