Raise your glass

And say a prayer

At a loss for words

This moment will not pass

-

Hold your tongue

Take a deep breath

Your heart beating fast

No, this moment won't end

-

Keep the tears

And still your heart

Breaking into shards

You know will never mend

-

The best man

You try to be

Always the last man

She looks to in the end

-

Still you try

And you hold fast

To the hope inside

While love leaves you broken

-

Everything

You gave to her

Nothing was enough

Though you try to pretend

-

Walk away

Learn to let go

She will walk her path

Find your own way and mend.

-

Raise your glass

And say a prayer

You will find the words

And this moment will pass.
