lyrics

You’re telling me a story
a story about living and you’re gonna live it up while you’re young for real
and every little picture that you took of you and me is falling down
and I just can't see or understand why you’re leaving
I just can’t believe what you said

At the end of the day, you are going away
in the frozen night, I finally found a way to say

That I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you

Things were getting heavy, and we grew apart
I know sometimes life gets hard
now its time to let you go, for real
I was to young and I just couldn’t see
you’re eyes were saying something that I couldn’t believe
you’re bags were packed you were out the door
Young in love it ain’t enough anymore but

When who we are is who we are,
there’s never any changing that
its not a matter of love, its just a matter of fact

And I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you

Its been raining in my head for days
I’m writing the words that don’t mean a thing
I’m working up the nerve to call you, you’re never coming back
before I know it I am out the door, I’m in my car
and just so you know, this happens every day
trying to figure out a way to say

That I will stand by you I’ll always keep you guarded
No one’s gonna take the love that I have built for you
and its a long way down to the city of roses
I may be gone tonight but I will be home
in the morning always waiting for you
