You Left Me

You Left Me

I'd wish upon a star in the sky
To light up my face
I'd write songs to sing
Please try and give me a place

I tried to kiss you last night
But you weren't even there
When will you say goodnight
You left me, without a care

I can't make you love me
Though, I thought I could try
I could wait til morning
If you'd sing me a lullaby

Mommy, you were my air,
My sun in the sky
You were warmth from the cold
Then you left me there to die

Without you, I am alone
I have no one who cares
Oh, how I must have hurt you
To have you leave me there

Today it started raining
You were the shield from the pain
But you ran away from me
Without you, I can't stand the rain

I can't make you love me
Nor can I hide the strain
My heart is now all empty
I guess I'll sit in the rain
