You said that we would be
Stronger apart than together and
I believed it, I regret that
You've moved on and I have to accept that and
I promised, I'd keep you
Separate from the love that I needed and
We can't get back what we might have had
If I'd been the one you'd believed in

You and me we had everything
I found honesty in your heart where I can breathe
If no-one asks the question then how can we
Find the answer
Find the answer

And you know that I blame myself
For what happened, and the things I felt
And I ask you, how can you know
The things I never tell you and
You think that I've changed my mind
Held on to things that I said I'd left behind
But you know that in the end love is just love
Wherever you find it and

You and me we had everything
I found honesty in your heart where I can breathe
If no-one asks the question then how can we
Find the answer
Find the answer

And you can hold my heart in your hand
It's only you I trust
And I'll keep my silence if we can be friends
I'll let it all go if I must

You think that I make too much
Of my problems, and my lack of love
And you don't get that this is all that I feel
Whether I like it or not
And I'm glad you don't quite understand
What it costs me to keep you this close at hand
And I let you think that I'm not strong enough
But I wouldn't wish this on anyway

You and me we had everything
I found honesty in your heart where I can breathe
If no-one asks the question then how can we
Find the answer
Find the answer
