Half the Man
Yesterday I was Half the man I used to be Oh, maybe that's because You're the other half of me Like the spring in bloom The summer of our love is soon Every bird will sing The melody of our love tune Send down from above Unconditionally love Likened to a flower Stronger love grows by the hour Stormy weather days Make us go our separate ways Where our love was so at ease Now you got me down on my knees Yesterday I was Brighter than the morning sun Now my love is lost And lonely days have just begun A solitary chair For a silent love affair A king lost his throne And now he sits alone
