Elizabeth, I remember waking up
and wondering was I dreaming all those years

Elizabeth, I could never be enough
I do my best, but falling short keeps standing up

Elizabeth, I still have the picture of
the day we met, but I can't see where I went wrong

Take my hand and we'll walk the extra mile
the clothes I wore were always out of style
but never once did I feel so out of place
as on that day when you turned and walked away

and breaking up was something I could not believe

Elizabeth, I've learned to breathe but not to love
I do my best, but falling short keeps standing up

Elizabeth, I remember waking up
