i've heard all of your parting lines
can only say good-bye
so many times
before you know you have
nothing to show
for your pain
sorry's a word you just can't
seem to find
does it ever enter your mind
i am in doubt you are
about to change

you can't just say i love you
you have to live i love you
i will forgive every time
but the last

i wish i could find a way
to sing the life back into you and i
but now I am afraid
it is just too late to lie

if your heart isn't in it
if you have nothing left to give
won't you go on and let me live
