Lyrics: 

I'm not strong enough to live without you
And I can't help but think of the things we'll never do

If I could trade forever for a little bit more time
I would spend my last breath asking you to be mine

I'm not strong enough, I'm feeling afraid
I miss how you always knew just what to say

If I could trade forever for a little bit more time
I would spend my last breath asking you to be mine

All my favorite memories of you are passing by
I reach out, try to hold on
It's too hard to say goodbye

I'm not strong enough these tears keep falling down
and I can't say goodbye, I can't make a sound

If I could trade forever for a little bit more time
I would spend my last breath asking you to be mine

All my favorite memories of you are passing by
I reach out, try to hold on
It's too hard to say goodbye

I've seen this happen amongst friends over the years, always sad not being able to find the courage. You've encapsulated it totally.

Sad subject, but a familiar one. Nicely constructed lyrics and the vocal melody is a strong one.

Gorgeous tender poignant heartfelt feelings delivered beautifully. You capture a sad sentiment that is all too familiar.

this song captures the true meaning of a break up. in a very literal sense, it is the end of a world....and new realities must be created from scratch. who wouldnt rather retire into past certainties than face an empty world that one must rebuild from nothing?

An emotional delivery of sad lyrics. Great job TC! In my head I could hear some B-3 on this giving it some colour. But it's great as is.

See You In The Shadows…

Such beautiful sadness. I like how the musical arrangement is minimized to let the vocal and melody carry the weight.
