Carpenters – In Love Alone lyrics

I memorize the words I want to say

I practice every move I'll make

I polay the scene like you were here

And I feel every breath you take

But all my plans just seem to melt away

The moment you walk in the room

I try to speak but words won't come

Till I'm alone again

I'm leaving my heart on the shelf

Sleep is a place I only cry myself

And dream by myself

(*) I'm not in love alone

We put our two hearts together

Just like I've always known

Once we begin we're forever

And I will never spend a long night

Without you again

So now you know what I've been going through

Now all I really need to know

Is why your eyes look so surprised

Oh no! This can't be true

Would you have let me walk away?

Why have you kept your feelings locked away?

Did I hear you say?

Repeat (*)
