I thought of you the other day

I thought of you the other day
The way it used to be
The way you told me you loved me the first time
And the way we held hands, hugged and kissed
How that all went away
The way it all changed
Even the way you used to look at me
I remember that place
And the sweet things you used to say
Now I don't even know the place or space
I'm in right now
Is it real or something,
I built to shield the pain?
This bubble that shields the pain
I thought of you the other day
As tears streamed down
The hollow apples of my cheeks
The way you laugh, the jokes you used to say
That became phrases of everyday
I thought of you the other day
And the day you loved me
And when it all went away
Smiles turned to tears
And tears turned to aching pain
Oh how things have changed
How you have changed me
How you have changed you
But today is just another day
That will become thoughts of you
I will call
The other day
