It has been too many days since I heard from you girl
Too many days since the scent of you filled the room

Photos of you and me on the shelf they just show the passing of time
Still dreaming of you and what life would be like
You're always on my mind

It has been 21 days since I saw you girl
21 days since we made regrets
21 days and I still have not forgotten you yet

In this lonely room, I hide
All my pain and lies
Thinking that is what makes me a man
By your side is what made me truly who I am
I gave it up for foolish pride
Now I sit here and cry

It has been 21 days since I held your hand
21 days since I saw your smile
21 days since I saw that twinkle in your eyes
Your image still lingers in my mind

Love is more than a physical touch
This relationship should never have been started on lust
Love is two hearts beating at the same pace
It should be about the purity of the soul
But these tears leave tracks on my face

It has been 21 days since we embraced
21 days you asked me to stay
I didn't care enough to see your pain
21 days since we said a word
Should have said I love you girl
