So you thought that she would never break your heart
I guess no one ever told you how it was going to be
And now, since you two have drifted so far apart
You wonder how you could have let her go free

It’s too late to tell her all the things you wanted to say
You can't make her tum around and listen anymore
What could you do now to have her want to stay
The last thing you heard was the slamming of the door

You watched her drive away, without even saying goodbye
Both of you wondering who was to blame this time
And you know the tears were there, glistening in her eyes
Because you cried too, at leaving everything behind

Packing up all the memories, you feel so cold and alone
You think of the tender moments that you were so near
Wishing you could talk to her, wanting to pick up the phone
Now that you are a broken man, it all seems so clear

Turning out the lights, sitting on the edge of the bed
Loneliness surrounds you everywhere, like a black cape
You see the pillow where she once laid her head
The emptiness is so hollow you just want to escape

Needing to hear her voice, or to see her beautiful face
You play some forgotten videos of days long gone by
Seeing her there, you can almost feel her warm embrace
But now you wonder how much of it was a lie

Maybe you will call her, tomorrow if you dare
Or send her some flowers to show your regret
You don’t even know if she still cares
This pain of the past you want her to forget

You should have known not to treat her bad
And you wish you could change it all
You took for granted the best thing you ever had
For she left the man who thought he would never fall.
