“Nineteen” Abigail Barlow Lyrics

You thought he was it, but he wasn’t
You gave him all your love and it wasn’t enough
You bought a ring, she wasn’t ready
She was your everything and you were just a fling

Deep down we’re scared to be alone
We lie and swear we’re better on our own
Denying we care if we turn to stone
With the other half unknown
No matter how far, no matter how wide
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side

Loving a friend, just keep it hidden
Better to bottle up than make a deeper cut
You hear the door shut but it doesn’t
You let it in and you pretend it’s just the wind

Deep down we’re scared to be alone
We lie and swear we’re better on our own
Denying we care if we turn to stone
With the other half unknown
No matter how far, no matter how wide
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side

He’s out there
She’s out there
You might not meet her today
But he’s coming your way
So stay a while
He’s out there
She’s out there
Too far to behold in your head
But it’s all part of the plan

Deep down we’re scared to be alone
We lie and swear we’re better on our own
Denying we care if we turn to stone
With the other half unknown
No matter how far, no matter how wide
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side, oh
They’ll be waiting for you on the other side of (unintelligible)
