I always  need needed time on my own

I never  thought  taught I'd need you there when I cried

And the days  feel  fill like years when I'm alone

Do you how much I you right now?

When you're gone

The   of my heart are missing you

When you're gone

When you're gone

All the words I need to hear to always get me    the day

And make it OK

I miss you


Type in the missing prepositions:

I've never felt this way  

Everything that I do

Reminds me     you

And the clothes you left

they lie      the floor

And they smell just like you


I love the things that you do

When you walk

I count the steps that you take


Do you see how much I need you right now?




Unscramble the following lines


   Yeah Yeah

   I know we were

   Everything I do I give my heart and soul

  All I ever wanted was for you to know 

  Out here forever
