I stand upon a rock
and look up to the sky
I put my hands over my face
and uncontrollably cry

I stand alone in a crowd
and hope to hide the pain
I hide behind myself
feeling I have nothing left to gain

I stand next to my love
and search deep into his eyes
I need to find a clearing
on this foundation built of lies

I stand in front of myself
and caress my broken heart
I fill with tears of love and loneliness
and wish he'd told me from the start

I stand in the midst of decision
and my heart begins to cry
I love him more than anything
Oh God, please help me try

I stand in a world without him
and I can't bear the thought
I become alone and empty
for he has the love I sought
