(Verse 1) Well, I walked in on a scene I couldn't believe, My heart shattered like glass, couldn't find reprieve. You and my childhood friend, hand in hand, A betrayal so deep, I can't understand. (Pre-Chorus) I thought we were building castles in the sky, But now those dreams are fading, oh, so high. I'll swallow my pain and swallow my pride, Step aside quietly, let your love take its stride. (Chorus) You found your way to his heart's open door, I'll disappear like a whisper, nothing more. I'll let you go, spread your wings and fly, Though it's tearing me apart, I won't ask why. (Verse 2) We had a love story, written in the stars, But now it's a tragedy with emotional scars. The memories we made, they cut like a knife, I never thought I'd face such a painful strife. (Pre-Chorus) I'll pack my bags, take my shattered heart, Find a new beginning, make a fresh start. I'll be the quiet river that flows away, Leaving you two in the sun's golden ray. (Chorus) You found your way to his heart's open door, I'll disappear like a whisper, nothing more. I'll let you go, spread your wings and fly, Though it's tearing me apart, I won't ask why. (Bridge) I'll hide my tears, wear a brave disguise, As I watch you both under the clear blue skies. The pain will linger, but I'll find my way, Somewhere beyond the hurt of yesterday. (Pre-Chorus) I'll find a new horizon, a distant shore, Where my heart can heal, and I'll hurt no more. I'll walk away with my head held high, Though it's killing me inside, I won't cry. (Chorus) You found your way to his heart's open door, I disappeared like a whisper, nothing more. I let you go, spread your wings and fly, Though it tore me apart, I won't ask why. (Outro) So here's to you, with a bittersweet toast, May your love shine bright from coast to coast. I'll fade into the night, a silent memory, A chapter closed, a love that couldn't be.
