[Verse 1]
Hard to believe I won't see you again
We were just fighting when winter began
The coldness of our words
Competing with the wind from the north

[Bridge 1]
Still they make me shiver
But in a very different way
The pages of the calendar kept turning away
I have some better words now
But it's too late to say them to you

[Verse 2]
My dream of all dreams
And my hope of all hopes
Is only to tell you and make sure you know
How much I love you and how much I always did

And yes, I know you loved me
I could see it in your eyes
And it was in your struggle and it was in your mind
And it was in the smile you gave me when I was a kid

[Chorus]
Feels like no one understands
And now my only chance to talk to you is
Through my prayers
I only wanted to tell you I cared

[Bridge 2]
Every night after and every day since
I found myself crying when the memory hits
Sometimes it knocks me down
Sometimes I can just put it away
Down in my mind where I don't care to go
The pain of a lesson is letting me know
If you have love in your heart
Let it show while you can

[Chorus]
Yes now I understand
But now my only chance to talk to you is
Through my prayers
I only wanted to tell you I cared
