Moving On

Everything you gave me
Is in a box burning in the rear view
Driving through memory lane
One last time before I leave it all behind
There’s the coffee shop where met
You walked in it was like a movie scene
Everything faded out of view
The only thing my eyes saw was you
There’s the pool hall where we had our first kiss
The rain was coming down
Looking into your eyes
The world around slowed and I knew that this was it
The love people only dream of
I can still feel your hand reach for mine
I can still feel your head on my shoulder as I drive
There’s the place we used to park
And spent hours talking, kissing, loving
Inside these four doors was a world that was just ours
There’s the pizza place we went almost everyday
I can still hear the sound you make when you’re full
There’s the bed we spent so much time in
I still lean over to kiss you when I wake at night
Only to find you’re not there
There’s the place we spent our first Valentine’s Day
The docks overlooking the shore
Looking into your eyes
Loving you more and more
As I drive away
I’ll leave pieces of my broken heart
So you can find your way to me if you so choose
Call me a masochist or whatever you wish
But I know I’ll never find a love like this
Until then I’m moving on
I’m leaving New York
For the Second City
For a second start
Everything you gave me
Is in a box burning in the rear view
Driving through memory lane
One last time before I leave it all behind
