Instead of me

Today I read your note one last time
And made a picture in my mind

Then I buried your words in the ground
For no one to be found

It troubles me to see the dirt on my hands
But I think you'd understand

God I miss you, God I miss you

Oh I know you are thinking of me but it's just not enough
You say "be patient my dear" but I need you here

But instead you're lost in feelings for somebody else
And it hurts me you're with him now instead of me,
Instead of me

Sometimes it's almost too much to bear
And it seems so unfair

Every secret and every little lie
Feeds the guilt inside

Now I know there is no other way
Still I long for the day

When we can be as one, be as one

Oh I know you'll be thinking of me but it's just not enough
You say "be patient my dear" but I need you here

But instead you're lost in feelings for somebody else
And it hurts me you're with him now instead of me,
Instead of me

Let's pretend for a moment, my dear
We could have it our way

Our very own place, sipping red wine and beer
On the porch, on a summer's day

Wouldn't that be great?

But till then you're lost in feelings for somebody else
And it hurts me you're with him now instead of me, instead of me..
