I Told You.On this cliff’s edge
I stand to my pledge
Here among the rocks and grass
I await time to pass
I told you I’d be here
In our place with nothing to fear.
I’ve stood here since you went away,
I shouted after you that I’d stay.
You said what we had was through
And I said that your heart was lying to you.
When you walked away from me
I told you where I’d be.
So here I stand
Wondering how far it would be ’till I land.
The wind whispers your name
And I’m sure I’ll never be the same.
Suddenly I hear your laughter through the trees
I turn and immediately feel my heart freeze.
There you are, arm in arm with him,
Your laughter is gone, and you turn grim.
You just look at me
As I lean on our tree.
I let one escape, one single tear.
I smile sickly, I told you I’d be here.
