The day we broke up


The day we broke up,
I felt like my life was taken,
All the things we did,  
For the life we tried to build,

It all seemed clear,
We didn't have the tools,
To build the life we wanted,

We tried so hard,
Too hard intact,
We broke the life we had started to build,

That could have been our life,
The life that would make us happy,  
for years ahead,  
But it all got knocked down,
Because your heart wasn't There 

You were all talk,
You wanted the life,
The happy life together,
But couldn't face the Barriers 
That you had to pass.

So off I go on my own,
In the pouring rain, I call my tears
For today is the day I depart my life 
My life with you that is.
