lyrics

I can't think back
to a time when you weren't there
when I cared about her

and it's always a sad thought
every time I tie my shoe
don't think I've ever taken a step
without her

when I ran ahead
you stayed put
I looked back, you said
“no, it's too late”

there was a fork in the trail
and I had to chase her tail
I couldn't imagine a day
without her

and I can't explain what she does
but she's sweet and she needs my love
and I care about her

and I care about her
and the moments that I am
without her
are all queueing up and looking to find
their way
