Part of me (2010 re-write)

It came to me as I was sitting there,
Upon the bank, the cherry-tree blossom scent fillin' the air
I've been an ass, I've been a fool
What was I thinkin' of to have left you not seemin' to care?

When was the last time I held you tight?
When was the last time we shared with each other at night?
I don't recall every time
But I can't erase beautiful mem'ries of us deep inside
'Coz you're a part of me

Remember the times we loved and laughed?
Now I'm spendin' my time wishin' the future was back in the past
'Coz you're a part of me

My boat's been driftin' without you Girl
And I've seen my sails out of control like a leaf on the wind
Now I see clear, know what to do
'Coz I spend all my quiet times thinkin' of nothin' but you
'Coz you're a part of me

Remember the time we were lovers and friends?
I promise this time, I'm comin' back and I'm makin' amends
'Coz you're a part of me

Now I believe we can navigate
Out through the storm to the sun 'coz it isn't too late
Come take my hand, pull me on through
I'll never leave you now 'coz I can't be myself without you

'Coz you're a part of me
You're such a part of me
Always a part of me
Ever a part of me
