“Plenty” by Sarah McLachlan

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

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

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

until my dying day

used to think my life
was often empty
a lonely space to fill
you hurt me more than
ever would have imagined
you made my world stand still
and in that stillness
there was a freedom
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.
