YOU DECIDED
Patty Griffin


I watched your window

I watched your shadow

I looked for another

But you'd already gone

I felt the wind blow

Cold on my shoulders

I felt your love go

Blowing out cold

We had the real thing

Up there in the moonlight

Didn't cost nothing

But each of our hearts

One day you stopped smiling

And singing those love songs

Then you decided

To make a new start


Love can be the sadness

That's living inside of a shadow

Decide that you want it

You pay with tomorrow

Decide you don't want it

And when you do, you let go

You don't have me

I don't have you

That's what they mean

By being through


I was just singing

Up in my room

When I caught myself thinking

About seeing you soon

But I know I have looked on

Your face for the last time

Part of the choices

That'll last for a life time


Love can be the sadness

That's living inside of a shadow

Decide that you want it

You pay with tomorrow

Decide you don't want it

And when you do, you let go

You don't have me

I don't have you

That's what they mean

By being through
