THE OTHER HALF OF WHO YOU ARE
Copyright 2013 Dana Clark


VERSE:  You knew the moment you first saw her she was the one you had to claim
You've made a million memories, sharing passion, sharing pain
In learning how to love her, the child you were became a man
I think you know she's not the reason you failed to live the life you planned

CHORUS:  She's not holding you back.
She's been holding you up
When you had nothing
You had each other
And that was enough
She's the one who really knows you
Each breath and every beat of your heart
Have you been trying to forget?
She's the other half of who you are.

VERSE:  You've been part of her so long that all your dreams became her own
Can she bear to hear you tell her you'd find it easier alone? 
The investment of a lifetime takes a lifetime to forget
But a passing fascination will soon leave nothing but regrets

CHORUS: She's not holding you back. She's been holding you up When you had nothing You had each other And that was enough She's the one who really knows you Each breath and every beat of your heart Have you been trying to forget? She's the other half of who you are. BRIDGE: Is it now or never? Is time running out? Is it later than it seems? Have you been afraid this is your last chance to pursue a young man's dream? VERSE: The life that you created was a perfect work of art Beautiful and balanced, an expression of your heart Of all the songs you've ever sung, this was better than the best Are you ready to exchange it for false illusions of success?
CHORUS: She's not holding you back. She's been holding you up When you had nothing You had each other And that was enough She's the one who really knows you Each breath and every beat of your heart Have you been trying to forget? She's the other half of who you are.
