Yes I do, I believe
That one day I will be, where I was
Right there, right next to you
And it's hard, the days just seem so dark
The moon, the stars, are nothing without you
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
No words can explain, the way I'm missing you
Deny this emptiness, this hole that I'm inside
These tears, they tell their own story

You told me not to cry when you were gone
But the feeling's overwhelming
They're much too strong
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
And make sure you're alright
I'll take care of you
And I don't want to be here
If I can't be with you tonight

I'm reaching out to you
Can you hear my call?
Woah, this hurt that I've been through
I'm missing you, missing you like crazy

You
Can I lay by your side, next to you, to you
And make sure you're alright
I'll take care of you
And I don't want to be here
If I can't be with you tonight
Oh, lay me down tonight
Lay me by your side
Woah, lay me down tonight
Lay me by your side
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
