lyrics

I don't want to leave this world without you
I want to stop using the word I too often
'Cause that's what they taught me in school
I don't want to greet the people I grew up with
I don't want to feel the need to talk to ghosts
There's a sadness in me that I can't let go of
It's there because I had to let go of you

And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know that I've loved you
And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know how much I adored you
And I don't want to be just a part of your mosaic
‘Cause I still feel
and I wait
I will wait

I know I will leave this world without you
It's a truth I'll never accept
And yes,.. I'll keep sending you letters
Without ever adding your address
All I want is to exist near you
But dreamland is as near as I can get

And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know that I've loved you
And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know how much I adored you
And I don't want to be just a part of your mosaic
Cause I still feel
and I wait
I will wait

And when I've left this world without you
Nobody will ever know
What kind of heart was beating in this chest
And how desperately it was trying to connect
I did not write this to show you my sorrow
I came here to close my eyes
Maybe obscurity will bring me some kind of closure
I hope it won't

And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know that I've love you
And this will be all that is left of me
And I want you to know how much I adore you
And I don't want to be just a part of your mosaic
Cause I still feel
and I wait
I will wait
