Before You (by Doug High)

Before you.

Before you, I was lonely
I was lonely in a crowd
as lonely as a cloud
in a sky of blue
before you, I knew only
how to live alone
didn’t have a home
before you.

But you, you made me smile again
when I thought that I would never
now my life, its worth while again
wether or not we are together
what can it be
what have you done to me
to make me feel this way
our future starts today.

Now when I think of times behind me
times that were long before we met
you’re always there to help me over
those times that I’d sooner just forget.

Before you, I was empty
I was empty as a shell
living in a hell, that was me
before you, I could not see
I could not see your love
standing in front of me

But you, you made me smile again
when I thought that I would never
now my life, its worth while again
wether or not we are together
what can it be
what have you done to me
to make me feel this way
our future starts today.
before you. , before you before you.
