After You Said Yes

by Kurt

"You caught me off guard"
You say with tears in your eyes
"I cannot go with you"
You mumble as you cry

My heart slowly shatters
And I say that "I'm fine"
Everything is spinning
I'm walking a thin line

On one side lays death
The other breathes life
I'm shrouded in pain
And dragged down by strife

I know that this hurts
You just as bad as me
Yet I will stay behind
As you fly away free

You say you're sorry
But I must confess
It will never be enough
After you said yes
