My young heart's in tatters

People have complained about me just plastering lyrics around, but sometimes I just have no words.
Oh no, here comes that sun again.
That means another day without you, my friend.
And it hurts me to look into the mirror and myself,
And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else.

And it's so hard to do and so easy to say,
But sometimes, sometimes you just have to walk away.

So many people to love in my life--
Why do I worry about one?
But you put the happy in my ness
You put the good times in my fun.

We've tried the goodbye for so many days.
We walk in the same direction so that we can never stray.
They say if you love somebody then you have got to set them free.
But I would rather be locked to you than live in this pain and misery.

They say time will make all this go away.
But it's time that has taken my tomorrows and turned them into yesterdays.
And once again that rising sun is dropping on down.
And once again, my friend, you are nowhere to be found.

- Ben Harper, "Walk Away"
