“Plenty” by Sarah McLachlan

“You made my world stand still and in that stillness there was a freedom I never felt before”

I looked into your eyes
they told me plenty
I already knew
you never felt a thing
so soon forgotten all that you do

In more than words I tried to tell you
the more I tried I failed
I would not let myself believe
that you might stray
and I would stand by you
no matter what they’d say

until my dying day

I used to think my life
was often empty
a lonely space to fill
you hurt me more than
I ever would have imagined
you made my world stand still
and in that stillness
there was a freedom
I never felt before

I would not let myself believe
that you might stray
and I would stand by you
no matter what they’d say, I would have thought I’d be with you
until my dying day
until my dying day

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
