I needed to know if you were ok
I needed to know if you were dismayed
I was not looking to get back together
I was not looking to see you with her
How are you feeling, is your heart ok?
How are you feeling, put that cigarette away
I'm sorry I cried, but I needed to say
I'm sorry I cried, that day I went away
I needed to tell of that horrible day
I needed to tell you my world died that day
I am no longer your happy old girl
I am no longer your only world
You looked heavier, with no care taken
You looked haggard, tired and weakened
I still saw a sparkle in your eyes that was mine
You showed me her picture, it looked like mine
You said I was "your everything" at that time
You said you'd be there when it was time
Times have changed, and so did we
Times have changed. we need to "be"
My life is a mess, you're not what I need
My life was blessed, when we were "we"
I see a different man, a lost soul in a crowd
I see a different man, an old flame had gone out
