Divorce was hard, but we get through. Our children though, suffer more than we ever know.
It's been seven hundred and thirty days
Since I've seen your face
Since I held your hand
Since you helped me understand

That life is short
And the true value of a day
When it's lost to time
My Everest to climb

I held on so tight
But you slipped away
And it's me who is to blame
Such a shame

I was left behind
I didn't want to hold you back
So I set you free...
Despite me

Did it have to be this way?
As I check another day
Maybe one day you will see
Maybe one day I'll be free

And stop counting my regrets
Break the cycle that's been set
On a brand new day
That will take my pain away

I know you had to choose
And someone had to lose
But still...I sit and wait for you
What else can I do?

Another day that passes by
Another day without you by my side
Will it be another year?
Or my worst fear?

My dreams have turned to dust
And tears have caused my heart to rust
It's only love that I can trust
To bring you back to me
