Twenty​-​Three

from The Days After by Taylor James

lyrics

We were so young not knowing what to do with all our love
I was so naive, so blind to see that you were just a thief
You stole everything I have ever loved and ever cared about
So I will fight to pick up every piece of me you left behind

At the age of twenty-three
I fought a war I could not see
Though no blood was ever shed
My soul's left fractured and dead without you
without you

It's been some time since you've rang my line
Why haven't you called me?
There was no "goodbyes" or "I will see you soon"
It was all too sudden
You left with him and now I'll never see it any other way
Was I not good enough?
I wanted to do everything to make you stay

At the age of twenty-three
I fought a war I could not see
Though no blood was ever shed
My soul's left fractured and dead without you
without you

Now is my time to shine
To break the mold and be more than fine
I'm so sick of crying all night
Over someone who never did me right
So now I'll sing this song tonight
To let you know
To let you know that

At the age of twenty-three
I fought a war I could not see
Though no blood was ever shed
My soul's left fractured and dead without you
without you
without you
without you
