Hear - the knock at the door and you know who is there,
You tell yourself you don't care.
Try - you try to pretend you'll just send him away,
You know it won't end that way
Your heart doesn't stand a chance, your eyes let him know
And your pride doesn't means a thing - you lost it for him years ago;
Hear - the voice at the door and it makes you afraid,
Afraid but you don't know how.
Try - you try to remind him the promise he made,
He doesn't remember now
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
The tears welling up inside, are drowning your dreams
And your chance for another chance, keep leaving with him so it seems
Time - the friend that would bring him around,
Is turning on you and it's bringing you down.
Love - you tell him you love him and want him to change,
He says that he'll really try,
Hear - how often you hear as he's closing the door.
And softly you say goodbye...
