Lyrics

NOT THE ONLY ONE

When we met, we laughed and loved and shared a joy for life
And in a year or two, I asked if you would be my wife
‘Cause I thought that I loved you
And you thought you loved me, too
And it seemed to b the only thing to do

But as the years went by we grew in different ways
Times got tough and I could barely see you through the haze
Then the “yes” turned into “no”
And the friend became a foe
But there’s something I must say before I go

Thank you for all the time you’ve given me
Thank you for all the things you’ve done
And though it might appear to be a wasted opportunity
I know it’s not the only one

How does a love get lost and how can it be found?
I thought I tried so hard to turn this mess around
But you drifted far away
And I know that I can’t stay
But there’s something, still, that moves me now to say

Thank you for all the time you’ve given me
Thank you for all the things you’ve done
And though it might appear to be a wasted opportunity
I know it’s not the only one

Where are the dreams that I once shared with you?
And who were the people we both thought we knew?
Though it might be for the best, it’s so hard
To walk away from all that you hold dear

I don’t know what I want, or where to go from here
And it may be a while before I do, but now it’s clear
That we need this time apart
And the chance for a new start
And the time to answer the questions in our hearts

Thank you for all the time you’ve given me
Thank you for all the things you’ve done
And though it might appear to be a wasted opportunity
I know it’s not the only one
I know you’re not my only one
