The Things You Take

Taking you where you’ll depart,
I can’t let you go.
Look at what you’ve done to me,
you’ve run deep into my soul.
And I know that there’s no sure guarantee,
this won’t be easy, no.

Then you walk away, I wish you could stay.
I need you here by my side.
But I will take on these lonely nights,
I’ll be waiting for you.
What can I do?
You took my heart with you.

Seeing your face in pictures of you,
brings me your smile and helps me pull through.
Remember the time that we sailed away to Mexico?
And we felt so free, we could do anything.
All of those times that we’ve shared,
they never seem long enough to me, no.

Then you walk away, I wish you could stay.
I need you here by my side.
But I will take on these lonely nights,
I’ll be waiting for you.
What can I do?
You took my heart with you.

And I just can’t wait to see you again to hold you.
And I just can’t wait to see you again to kiss you.
Look what you do to me.

Counting the days until you will stay.
I need you here by my side.
But I will take on these lonely nights,
I’ll be waiting for you.
What can I do?
You took my heart with you.
