What do you do when your hero's gone away
And no one has an answer, no one seems to understand why?

You're all on your own now

But though she saw the signs, and spoke her desperate words
They failed to cross the lines drawn, patterns unfamiliar
With each erratic thought expressed and earnestly heard
Her swelling heart endures, as a line connects but another grows

I never knew things could end this way
With so much hurt, so much pain
Oh, I miss you more, much more than my heart has ever felt before

What do you do when your hero's left you
And you could have been the one to put her mind at ease
Obscure and unrecognizable patterns drawn, unknown to their host
The depth is beyond what you've been led to believe

And so she saw the signs, but every desperate word
Became an agent to a helpless situation
The stillness of her heart and hands so cold and forlorn
She holds for one last time, in the hopes she'll know she'd never leave her side
