about

Well, here's another song where I try to convince myself everything is alright. I wrote this for Stephanie whom I met on the beach in Costa Rica.

Of course it turns out she lived 4 blocks from me in Toronto and we ended up dating for a while. I fell pretty hard for her and when things ended I was pretty shook up. It's still hard for me to sing this one sometimes.

lyrics

Happy without you (Gladstone 2006)

Why don't you call for me, Like I call for you
What will I ever do If I can't be with you
Will I ever learn to love myself
Enough to stay on course keep my mental health
Will I ever learn how to take my turn
To let the past be free, live harmoniously


Chorus
I know we decided that this was best but now I’m left with a hole in my chest
Where you once were is now all flat, the wind blows through and sets me back
All I see and all I do is look around and see its you
Here and there your brown blond hair, your curvy shape your gentle stare

When will you come to me
Baby can't you see
I see you on the streets
I see you in my dreams

Come take this pain from me
Dilute it in the sea
Where mother takes me in
Her ocean sets me free

Chorus

Bridge
All these crazy thoughts
Dull my sense for naught
For I can only grow
When I let you go

Chorus- x2
