Then you hear the sound of this word
And there is only one thing for sure,
Nothing is like it used to be,
It won’t be the same anymore. 


Everything that is left behind
Will only remain as a scar
And no matter how hard you try
It will never be the same.


Before I had you with me.
Before I was all complete.
Now my home is all in ruins,
You left with all I had to live.


And now everything falls apart,
With nothing but devastation
And a feeling of loneliness;
Even the cat can’t fill the gap.


What am I supposed to do?
How am I supposed to deal the day?
How do you pretend I’ll sleep at night?
I feel so insecure
As a house with broken walls
As a child who lost his dog in the whirl-wind
My words are just a storm
After all the devastation
Your departure left me behind.
