Lyrics
I Never Thought
© 2014 Bruce Mills (SOCAN)

I never thought a day like this would ever come
I never thought I'd ever see the sun
Filling up the morning with such emptiness
And move across the sky so slow with sadness

I never thought the time would ever come
When holding you was really letting go
How can the sun shine on a day like this?
When it only makes the shadows darker anyway
I wish the clouds would come and bring the driving rain
And wash away this pain

Chorus

All the love I got for you inside my heart / self
Don't matter at a time like this
And, nothing I can do or say / or pray is gonna change
The fact that I am losing you

Don't tell me love is gonna last forever
When the truth is that
It always lets me down
I don't know how my life / world will go on
/ Without you

Why does the sun shine on a day like this?
When it only makes the shadows longer anyway
I never thought I'd need to turn my eyes away
Or hide from you the words I cannot bring myself to say

I never thought a time like this would ever come
When holding you so close would make me cry
I never knew that loving you could hurt so bad
I never knew that loving you was feeling all this pain
I never thought a moment could exist in time
When everything that ends must now begin

I never thought the time would ever come
When holding you was really letting go
And loving you was more than I could take
When loving you was not enough for one more day
Can you feel the sun shining on your face?
