He picked up her heart
Holding it ever so gently,
And stretched his hand out toward her.

He pulled a bandage from his pocket.
His arm outstretched toward her once again,
"It is fixed."

Meaning You, and the others,
Have impacted my life.

The same skyline I stared at on my final call with...

I guess it was always me, loving you, after all,
