I've been lost inside, empty space in my heart
And some things never change, oh
How it hurts me and how it's tearin' me apart
And it just goes on and on

Can you read my mind
Take a good look at my face
Could you take the time
Just to stand here in my place

What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, look inside
Can you read my mind? Oh oh

When I hear your name
Feel so cold deep inside
Still it's hard to explain, oh
What your love meant to me
They say time will heal the pain
But it just goes on forever

Can you read my mind
Have you closed the door on love
Can you be so blind
Did you think I'd just give up

Chorus:

What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, wanna cry
What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when it hurts so deep inside
And it never fades away, Fade away

Time can't erase the reasons why
Count my mistakes and the heartaches
Since you said goodbye

(chorus)

Never fades away, no it don't fade away
