When You Were Here

When you were here
I could speak without words
When you were here
I could listen without sound
A kiss for hello
A touch for your mine
This is language of our old life

I miss your hands on my neck
And your body on mine
I miss your laugh and your moods
And the way we’d fight

It seems I’ve discovered a new way to cry
I was single before you
But now I’m empty inside

When you were here
I could feel all that you said
Each kiss was a promise
Each touch was a pledge
Tell me I get you
Tell me I’m here
Tell me I’m worth it
I wont disappear

Without you the chorus is humming a lie
The kisses are gone
The touch says goodbye
I wake from a dream
And the pillow is cold
The memory fades
And now I don’t know

Was it all make believe
Was it all in my head
You can blame it on me
We can both fantasize
But did I dream your I love yous
Did I dream all your smiles
Did I dream how you held me
In our old life

When you were here

I could speak without words
