They say behind every successful man, stands a lady, making all of your dreams come true;
The sun would stop shining, the stars would lose their glow, if I ever had to live my life without you.
Without you there to hold my hand, I couldn’t even walk, let alone write;
Without you feeding my courage, I would lose my will to fight.
Without you in my life, my body would be left with nothing, except maybe a fragile beating heart;
Without you guiding me to my destiny, I wouldn’t be almost there, I would be right back at the very start.
Without you time would stand still, as everyone moves forward, I would be left behind;
Without you I would be lost searching for a replacement, which I know I would never find.
Without you I couldn’t breathe, without you I would still be scratching away at my external grave in the ground;
Without you music would lose its beat, and the world would lose its sound.
Without you there to catch me I would still be falling through the sky;
Without you I would lose my angel wings, without you I wouldn’t have learnt how to fly.
Without you my days would be lonely, facing the night time of darkness all on my own;
Without you this house is just bricks filled with memories, without you I wouldn’t know where to call my home.
Without you my dreams would turn into nightmares, without you the skies wouldn’t be so blue;
They say behind every successful man, stands a lady, and standing behind me, is you.
