I had trouble just holding back the tears
When you said that you were leaving me and you’d never come back here
I maybe dumb but I understand
The world I knew will never be the same again

I only came home yesterday
Just to find that my world was empty and betrayed
I know what I said before I left
But I thought you’d know that I really didn’t mean it

Cause now it just doesn’t feel right
When all we’ve got are these lonely empty nights
Empty nights

I’m coming home across the bridge alone
I’m stumbling back even though I don’t wanna go
My house is no longer my home
The only thing I can feel there is this conflict that we own

And now I’m trying to sleep at home alone
Waiting for the the moment when you walk thought that door
I’ll cry myself to sleep tonight again
As I wonder if this will ever truly mend

I can’t believe this is how it’s gonna end
It just doesn’t seem to fit with the life we had lived
