I tell myself that future years
Will end the pain I feel inside,
That apprehension steps aside
When finally this moment’s passed,
That suffering will not always last
And now I simply need endure
This aching heart until I’m sure
I’ve cried those few remaining tears.

You’re not by my side any more.
You’re not by my side any more.
You’re not by my side,
How I cried and swore
When I saw you by his side the other morn.

It seems that you have drunk your fill,
Intoxication’s run its course.
You’re rushing on with no remorse
And leaving sadness in your wake.
Was I just a heart to break,
A brightly burning flame to snuff?
You’re moving on, you’ve had enough
And even so I love you still.

You’re not by my side any more.
You’re not by my side any more.
You’re not by my side,
How I cried and swore
When I saw you by his side the other morn.
