What Do You Do?

This is a song that I wrote when I was finally able to let go. Maybe it will help you all as well.

 

 

What do you do

when the words have been said?

but the voice of your pain,

still lingers in your head?

Do you lay there in the darkness

with no one to hold

Do you see the road ahead of you?

The journey that has begun.


I am standing at the crossroads

Dreading my first step,

I want to look back,

and see your arms wide open for me.

But my eyes stay looking forward.

As I break down inside.

I don't know what to do.


What do you do,

If your love is pushed aside,

and the pain you feel when you see them,

grows with every new day?

Do you hold your head high,

with a smile on your face?

Do you put on your act,

For the whole world to embrace?


what do you do,

with the tears in your eyes,

with the ice in your veins,

with the pieces of your shattered heart?


Do you wipe those tears away,

or let them stain?

break the ice,

or let it remain?

Do you mend your broken heart,

or let it fall apart?


I am crying out to you,

Hoping you will hear

that I never did stop loving you

And I still want you here.

As I stand there listening

to my plea fade into silence.

I don't know what to do.

All I want is to love you.


I am dying at the crossroads

with my heart still screaming

I can't let you out of my life,

I want to see you smiling

But my eyes stay looking forward,

As I break down inside.

I can't do, what I have to.


I am crying out to you,

Hoping you will hear

that I never did stop loving you

And I still want you here

As I stand there listening

to my plea fade into silence.

I don't know what to do.


I take my first step as I leave my heart behind.

It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

To stop loving you.
