She Just Couldn't Stay (Trembling Blue Stars)

Sometimes a dream with haunt me all day I walk around feeling something has changed I catch myself thinking you feel as I do Like somehow the dream is haunting you too But I know the longing Is mine and mine alone I keep forgetting That I'm in love with a ghost The person you were I know you're not her She went away She went away I still want to say "Why did you change?" When I know full well There's no need to tell The person you were I know you're not her She just couldn't stay All of those letters of pain and love - Did we burn too bright, too bright to last? Were we destined always for a broken heart each? That we're now worlds apart Sometimes it seems When I'm around you One thing becomes clear The person I think of Every day is elsewhere
