Lost in a feelin'
So very deep inside of me
Something's not healing
Ever since you left this place

Oh, but I loved you
And although I didn't know you
Just the idea of you
Brought rapture to my face

I feel, I almost got to know you
At least you made it to my heart
Even though we'll always
Be a world apart

Now I'm getting on without you
But I need to cry sometimes
'Cause I know we'll always
Be a world apart, a world apart, a world apart

Voices of children
In the streets, I hear them laughing
It all fades to one voice
I hear crying in the night

I think about you
Wondering if you're out there listening
As if the words
I sing will somehow bring you light

Well, I almost got to know you
At least you made it to my heart
But I know we'll always
Be a world apart

Now I'm getting on without you
But there's a shadow in my heart
'Cause I know we'll always
Be a world apart

Seems I almost got to know you
At least you made it to my heart
But I know we'll always
Be a world apart

Through the constancy of memory
You will live inside my heart
Then we'll never have to
Be a world apart

Over and over I never knew
How much till you were gone
Over and over and over
You will be mine eternally, I think

I never knew how much I loved you, baby
Why do we have to be?
At least you made it to my heart
You know I never knew how much
I never knew how much
I never knew how much till you were gone
