Despair

Not the girl by Darey

Chorus

You’re not the girl I used to know, you’re a shadow
of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that’s left a
shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know
someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Verse 1

I’ve been sitting here for two straight hours
watching you asleep
Wishing I could talk to you
There is no denying we both have emotions
running deep
Oh! If I could talk to you

Rise

Cause I’m scared, cause when I try to take your hand
you are not there
And even though I see the signs you think I’m just
scared
Give me one reason why I should hide my fears
When it’s killing me inside

Chorus
you’re not the girl I used to know, you’re a shadow
of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that’s left a
shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
And I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Verse 2

We have been together for so long, you seem a
part of me
Just how did this all go wrong?
And you say you gave me your best just to make it
work
Just how did this all go wrong?

Cause I tried, see my eyes are empty from all the
tears I cried
Since this perfect love is hardly satisfied
Give me one reason why I should hide my tears
When it’s killing me inside

Chorus

You’re not the girl I used to know, you’re a shadow
of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that’s left a
shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
And I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good

Bridge

And if I ever come across a girl like you again
I don’t know if I will let my emotion show
I’ll just look the other way; I don’t care what you
might say
Cause I’m not so sure how much of this my poor
heart can take

Chorus

You’re not the girl I used to know, you’re a shadow
of yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that’s left a
shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
And I know someday that will be you
Leaving me for good
