Part Of Me

words and music written by

Put you away up on a shelf
Wasn’t happy with myself 
Was sure I left you there for good 

Learned to hate what I once loved
clouds covering above
No longer felt like it should  

You were a part of me for so long
Did you have to be so strong
I tried to get away 
I tried to move on
Part of me like breathing
Fought for air as you were leaving
But I stopped believing
In this part of me  

Am I able to replace
Take up the empty space
Where the music used to play

Now I’m breathing in this atmosphere
Is there anything in here
That can sweep my soul away

You were a part of me for so long
Did you have to be so strong
I tried to get away
I tried to move on
Part of me like breathing
Fought for air as you were leaving
But I stopped believing
In this part of me

I can hear your familiar call
Did you really go away at all     
Were you hiding behind the trees
Were you playing hide and seek 

You were a part of me for so long
Did you have to be so strong
I tried to get away
I tried to move on
Part of me like breathing
Fought for air as you were leaving
But I stopped believing
In this part of me
