Written by: Tom Shapiro, Ron Hellard

Tonight,
I'm as lonely as it gets
Wish I could say I've no regrets
But I didn't realize back then
Just exactly what I had
Now I do and it's so sad
I miss you bad

CHORUS:
I shoulda listened
To the beating of my heart when I held you colse
To the words I said when I said
"I'll never let you go"
I shoulda listened
To the voice inside my head that said "It's love"
Now all I hear
Is the sound of falling tears
I shoulda listened

My mind
Doesn't hesistate to say,
"You fool, you let her slip away"
But I just don't want to hear the truth
I try to cover my ears
But I'm coming in louder and clear
Wish I had when you were here

REPEAT CHORUS
