On every sunrise, every mountain
Every rainbow, every star
I’m loving you, I know you’re there.
Yet I’m not sure where you are.
Are you sitting here beside me
Or were you that bird that flew.
I feel the wind blow in my ear.
And I’m wondering if it’s you.
Are you reading over my shoulder?
Are you holding my hand right now?
I want to tell you I love you
But I’m not sure if I know just how.
I can feel you wiping my teardrops
And asking me please not to cry.
I’m missing you and loving you so much,
It’s always hard to say good-bye.
