I want someone to hold me, to say it’s alright
Want someone to love me, guide me through this night
But there is no one there, I thought I had you
But it turns out I’ve no one, not one friend who’s true

You’re there, I see you, you’re standing before me
But you’ve turned your back, as though you don’t see
The hurt you have caused, the pain that runs deep
The heart that was given you, that you would not keep

I wait for you, check the mail, sit by the phone
There is nothing there, the words you said are gone
My fingers trace over old letters kept so long
They are all I have left, a faded memory of song

I told you I’d stick by you, forever and a day
I told you I’d be there, even when you’re far away
But what have I gotten in return? You act like I’m not here
I’m still sticking by you, even though you’re not near.

Won’t you at least look back one second?
Why don’t you hear my call, see my beckon?
If only I could look into your eyes one more time
I would have a bit of you to save, to be mine.

I’m broken, I’m lost, I just want your help
But you don’t need me, you have someone else.
I’m fading, I’m waiting, I’m falling apart
But you won’t even turn, you have broken my heart.
