Just never thought I could lose on you

And how do I move
Now that you've moved on?
And how do I fight 
now that you're long gone?
And how do I dream

All the meaning behind
F                     Bb                    
Every season that I spent with you
   F                      C         F       
I never thought you would cross the line

And how do you feel
when you walk into the door?
and how do you look
in the mirror anymore?
And how do you toss
      F     F/E     Bb                       
the idea of you and me?
