All That’s Unsaid
Lyrics by: Chrissy de Pool
Music by: Eddie de Pool
I heard your heart hit the ground and shatter to pieces
And now, I watch as you and others try to fix this
Because of the storm inside, your teardrops are like a downpour that won’t let up.
Oh, how I hate to see all of you cry. This wasn’t the way it was supposed to be and everyday you wonder why.
I know you don’t understand it.
The walls are caving in yet…
Promise me, you’ll go on and live your life.
I know you can’t forget the past or what happened that night,
but no matter how bad things may seem, remember us and all our dreams.
‘Cause God, I wish you could see who you are and who you’ll be.
I remember how you cared for me and even though, I can’t undo what I did,
please forgive me for all that’s unsaid.
I’m so sorry that this has been so difficult and you have to believe me when I say it’s no one’s fault.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not there and I don’t care how you’re feeling.
I wish I would’ve given it another try. Life can be full of regrets. I hated it…holding on to secrets.
I know you still can’t believe it.
I know you don’t have the strength yet.
He was God-sent, so strong. Like me, he takes risks. I’ll always love you, Trent.
No matter how much this life demands, I know you’re in good hands.
Mia, you’re so beautiful and petite. Like your momma, you’re so sweet.
We haven’t met, Alaina, but I know you so well. You look just like me. So obvious, everyone can tell.
Brook, I need you to know that I meant everything I said about our future and our girls.
Even though it feels we’re worlds apart, you’re still my whole world.
I need you to know there’s nothing much stronger than the love that we had.
If I could wish upon a star, I’d wish to be back to where you are.
With family and friends, who still love me even after the end.
While I’m not too far, I’d wish to be back to where you are.
Back to the places, we have been. To laugh all night, just like we did back then…
