She doesn't know what she's done, or if she likes what she's begun, but something told her to go and that it should end.
Only thing is, you don't know who you are without her.
    All I know is that you should
She's not sure if she'll be able to stand another hand upon you
   All I know is that she should
Why? Because she will love you more than she could, she, who dares to stand where she stood
You meant more to her than anyone she's ever loved at all
But she taught you how to trust yourself and you know it's what you have to do
How do I know?
Because I found myself listening to that same voice, whispering that I should go, run, that it was all or none.
And I was just as torn inside as she feels now.
But I knew that she would love him more than I could, she who dared to stand where I stood.
He meant more to me than anyone I'll ever love at all and he taught me to trust myself, thats why I knew what I had to do.
I didn't know who I was without him, but I knew that I should.
I couldn't stand the thought of another hand upon him, but I knew that I should.
They will be loved more than we could love them, and we will be loved more than we were- by those who dare to stand where they stood.


  1. Thanks Kristi, it is my twist/version of a song by Missy Higgins that I love. I different view point I guess.
