Roaming the lonely dark streets of my hometown,
Searching for the one and only guy I love.
He is nowhere to be found.

Heartbroken, hurt and empty.
The fear I’ll never get to see him again.
Fearing he’ll never forgive me for the selfish acts I put upon him.

Wishing I could hold him in my arms again.
Walking along the lonely highway, looking up,
Noticing that familiar walk of my loved one.

A smile creeping upon my face.
A relief sighing through my chest.
That empty part of me slowly fills as we walk closer to each other.

Finally as we hold each other my life is back on track.
You never know what you got until it’s gone.
Treasure what you’ve got... and never let it go.
