The Other Half of Me

When I was a kid, things were going pretty fast
Didn’t realize it would soon be the past
Don’t ever think for a moment
That your life can’t change
It’s how much you matter to me that makes it worth the pain

I’ve been thinking of you so much lately.
Now would be when I need you the most in my life.
Nothing can change what was meant to be
I didn’t want to think about it, so I set it aside and moved on.

Sometimes I feel like it’s the end of the world
Then I realize it’s just for a while
I do miss you and sometimes I feel left out
When I hear people talking
And never mentioning your name

Is that the reason, why I hide inside?
Wanting to be normal
Wishing, I could change back time,
I’d have been grateful, though I was just a child

Now I’m practically all grown up
I realize why there’s been a hole inside of me
Things will get better, I know, if I just believe
They’ll never change and will never be the same.
Life and death, it’s all part of the plan.
