I'm not one for love songs
The way I'm living makes you feel like giving up
But you don't,
And I want everything for you
But disappointment

'Cause you've been left behind
And the world has it's shine,
I would drop it on a dime for you

(Hey oh! )
And whatever it takes
(Hey oh! )
I'm gonna make my way home
(Hey oh! )
We can turn our backs on the past
And start over...

Not long ago
I gave up hope,
But you came along
You gave me something I could hold on to
Woah-oh
And I want you
Oh, woah
More than you could ever know

Before I met you
I used to dream you up and make you up in my mind (up in my mind)
Woah-oh
And all I ever wanted
Was to be understood
You've been the only one who could
I could never turn my back on you

(Hey oh! )
And whatever it takes.
(Hey oh! )
I'm gonna make my way home
(Hey oh! )
We can turn our backs on the past
And start over...

Not long ago (not long ago)
I gave up hope, (I gave up hope)
But you came along (you came along)
You gave me something I could hold on to
Woah-oh
And I want you
Oh, woah
More than you could ever know (more than you could ever know)
More than you could ever know
It's you.

Not long ago
I gave up hope,
But you came along.
Gave me something I could hold on to
Woah-oh
(Yeah! )
Not long ago (not long ago)
I gave up hope, (I gave up hope)
But you came along (you came along)
You gave me something I could hold on to
Woah-oh
And I want you
Oh, woah
More than you could ever know
