How Much Longer?

The sound of the clock ticking deafens my ears
Because it’s telling me how long it’s been since you left
It is harder to breathe with you not here
Because it feels like you stole my last breath
I follow your footsteps, hoping we’ll cross paths
And that you’ll finally walk back to me
But then I see her with you, the tears are breaking through
And I’m crying so hard that I can’t see

How much longer can I chase you when you don’t chase me?
How much longer will I allow you to take over my dreams?
How much longer do I have to wait for you to say my name?
How much longer will it take for things to change?
My faith is growing weaker by the day
And my heart is breaking in every way
So I don’t know how much longer I can stay strong
When you are moving on

I look at your photograph and act as if it was real
Telling you how was my day as if you really care
The scars you made, now open, I don’t care if they heal
All I want is you to recognize that I am lost without you here
I follow your footsteps, hoping we’ll cross paths
And that you’ll finally walk back to me
But then I see her with you, the tears are breaking through
And I’m crying so hard that I can’t see

How much longer can I chase you when you don’t chase me?
How much longer will I allow you to take over my dreams?
How much longer do I have to wait for you to say my name?
How much longer will it take for things to change?
My faith is growing weaker by the day
And my heart is breaking in every way
So I don’t know how much longer I can stay strong
When you are moving on

Why must I be everything you no longer want?
Why do I cry myself to sleep?
Maybe because you’re no longer with me
Why can’t I just forget everything you said?
Why do I still believe that you’re the one?
Maybe because I think the damage’s done
The next time I follow your footsteps and we cross paths
I will remember this day
I don’t care if she’s with you, the tears won’t break through
Because there’s something I need to say

How much longer can I chase you when you don’t chase me?
How much longer will I allow you to take over my dreams?
How much longer do I have to wait for you to say my name?
How much longer will it take for things to change?
My faith is growing weaker by the day
And my heart is breaking in every way
So I don’t know how much longer I can stay strong
When you are moving on

Answer me please, baby
How much longer?
