It's Been A Year Lyrics LIFT the Musical

British Musical by Craig Adams & Ian Watson
LIFT the Musical - It's Been a Year Lyrics

"It's Been a Year" is a song from the musical LIFT performed by Julie Atherton.

A sound like rushing stopped my dreaming and I began to slow right down
Thinking of everything you said and how I left but could not move
Then everything you'd ever done began to climb inside my thoughts
The birthday card, the photograph, the cancelled trip, the souvenir

Your eyes are clear
Your smile so weak
I understood, but it was hard, I said goodbye and breathed you in

It's been a year, this will take time

And soon my senses will shut down and I'll feel tired and want to sleep
And weak and everywhere I turn, my eyes will show me all the things you've touched
The dress I wore the night we danced, the chair, the corner shop... My bed.
And slowly one by one, I'll have to change the memories they hold

It's not their fault
They weren't to know
But I could leave this house right now and all I own

It's been a year, this will take time

So please forgive me if I cry and cannot handle this
it's just that I began to believe
And please forgive the way I act in front of friends of ours
you carry on and have a good time
And if I say some stupid things, or drink too much ignore me
it's better that way

It's not your fault
You weren't to know
But I could leave this house right now and all I own

It's been a year, this will take time

[Thanks to Simone for lyrics]
