Stock Music track: Loved and Lost

This song is to describe that utter darkness you feel after a recent break-up and nothing in your life or routine seems normal anymore, something's missing. You desperately cling to anything that reminds you of that old life, even if it isn't real. You can't seem to fall asleep without that warm body next to you in bed. You just want to hold or talk to that person. You miss them so much. The lyrics cite- it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all-and although that might be true, it still makes getting over someone really hard. Available as a vocal version and an instrumental version.

Lyrics: Lately I've been struggling to fall asleep
Cause it feels like my life's not complete
Til I've called and said goodnight
Sweet dreams and sleep tight
It's been tough without you here,
And I just want to hear your voice say
I love you one more time.

Even if you're lying, I don't care one bit
If it means you'll say those words
Then please be full of it.
Cause I just want you back,
So please let me pretend
That this story can still have a happy end.

But if I wake up in the morning
And this all was just a dream
And nothing turns out quite the way it seems
They say it's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all
I guess there is some truth in what they say
Cause I'd rather have these memories of you
Then have nothing at all

Lately I've been trying just to think
Cause it feels like my life's not complete
Til I've called and said goodnight,
Sweet dreams and sleep tight
It's been tough without you here
And I just want to hear your voice
Say I miss you just one time


I'd rather have these lonely nights
I even miss those stupid fights
I'd rather have them back and that's the truth
Yea I'd rather never breathe again
And boy I hope you're listening
Cause I'd rather have these scars and battle wounds
Then to never have had you
Then to never have had you
