You Drift Away

all the things i should have said
and all the things i should have done
to show you while i had you here
your kiss would be the only one

i never wrote the words before
i let the lines all slip away
forever now i'll write to you
i've never had so much to say
i'll try to let you go your course
the price of which i'll have to pay
but know that under all the tears
i love you though you drift away

i sometimes put the ring back on
but only when you're not around
the quietness without you here
has grown into a frightening sound
