You can close your eyes and pray That she'll come back Or you can open your eyes And see she's left. Your heart can be empty Because you can't see her Or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow And live yesterday Or you can be happy for tomorrow Because of yesterday. You can remember her And only that she's gone Or you can cherish her memory And let it live on. You can cry or close your eyes Be empty and turn your back Or you can do what she'd want, Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
