Only One

I pretend i’m listening when they talk to me
I put on a happy face so no one sees
The way I feel

I could find a million ways to say that i’m alright

The room grows darker every minute of the day
you seem farther from the place you used to lay
your hand in mine

I could find a million ways to say that i’m alright
I could say a hundred prayers to help me sleep at night
I could find a pair of hands to hold my heavy heart
But there’s only one I wish for tonight

I leave a candle burning by the window pane
the lonely light leaves me yearning for those brighter days
with you hand in mine

I could find a million ways to say that i’m alright
I could say a hundred prayers to help me sleep at night
I could find a pair of hands to hold my heavy heart
But there’s only one I wish for tonight
