You Drift Away 

all the things I should have said 
and all the things I should have done 
to show you while I had you here 
your kiss would be the only one 

I never wrote the words before 
I let the lines all slip away 
forever now I'll write to you 
I've never had so much to say 
I'll try to let you go your course 
the price of which I'll have to pay 
but know that under all the tears 
I love you though you drift away 

I sometimes put the ring back on 
but only when you're not around 
the quietness without you here 
has grown into a frightening sound
