Don't Let Me Go

So much for "Call me anytime" -
All I get is that familiar chime
To leave a message at the beep;
I just hang up and try to sleep.

I haven't heard your voice in days.
Your face is like a song on replay,
Stuck in my head and I can't forget...
Can't seem to let you go just yet.

So do you care; do you miss me?
When you close your eyes, am I what you see?
Do you lie in bed with tears in your eyes?
Do all your days have rainy skies?
Or have you forgotten, have you moved on?
You act like you're already gone.
And if there's one thing I'd want you to know,
I don't want you to let me go.

I lie in bed, my mind drifts away -
Takes me back to better days.
You were the sunshine in my sky.
If I said I didn't love you, I'd have to lie.

Somehow my hope is still alive
That you'll regret having said goodbye,
And you'll come to me, smile on your face,
And tell me all the pain can be erased,

So do you care; do you miss me?
When you close your eyes, am I what you see?
Do you lie in bed with tears in your eyes?
Do all your days have rainy skies?
Or have you forgotten, have you moved on?
You act like you're already gone.
And if there's one thing I'd want you to know,
I don't want you to let me go.

So I pick up the phone again - but wait -
I figure it's probably way too late,
And I should just go to bed -
But I can't get these thoughts out of my head:

That you don't care, you don't miss me.
When you close your eyes, I'm not what you see.
When you lie in bed, there are no tears -
If you suffered from heartbreak, you're already cured.
You may not have forgotten, but you've moved on...
You might as well be already gone.
But there's still one thing I want you to know,
I just don't want you...to let me go...
There's only one thing I want you to know...
I don't want you to let me go...
