Lyrics: All the sweet things you used to say
And all your fun and wild ways

You left me standing here
Alone to face my fears
I was okay… until you left

You’ll break my heart
Don’t you know it always happens?
You’ll break my heart
And don’t you know that’s how it goes?
In the end no one knows

All our dreams that were to be
Are now a distant memory

They’re for somebody else
But only I have felt
The sadness you left me with

Repeat Chorus

No one knows about my sorrows …
No one knows about my tears …
Does anyone know?
I wasn’t told the reason why
You said goodbye and left me here

Repeat Chorus

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
