Writers: Bruce and Beth Scism / Gary Best

I lay down by the pillow where she’s been
Closing my eyes I breathe her in
Sleep will soon come for me
I pray, it brings relief

In the morning I will raise my weary head
Stumble over things I left unsaid
In the kitchen I turn to see
An empty room where our love used to be

I wade through a river of regret
No longer sail on an ocean of hope
Without her by my side, a part of me has died
I’m sinking in this river of regret

Instrumental Note: takes off on (overlaps) last measure of chorus

Daylight comes sneaking through the door
Bound to leave its footprint on my floor
[Still tears and][Dreams of] memories remain
Shadows of themselves they slip away

REPEAT CHORUS

TAG
I’m sinking in this river of regret
