I knew
I was over you,
there was nothing
you could do.

How wrong I was.

I pray
every single day,
in the future
there’s a way.

I pray because:

With her laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
her sun-tanned back
and jumping Jack,
her gorgeous smile
and carefree style,
she reminds me
of you.

I lie
and I wonder why,
why I’m stranded
high and dry.

Turned upside down.

I guess
when you whispered yes,
it was fortune,
nothing less.

Made me a clown.

With her laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
her sun-tanned back
and jumping Jack,
her gorgeous smile
and carefree style,
she reminds me
of you.

I was searching for someone new,
but she reminds me, reminds me of you.

With her flowing hair
and touches there,
her knowing look
and tell-tale book,
her own perfume
in every room,
she reminds me
of you.

She reminds me
of you.
