Seven days have gone so fast
I really thought the pain would pass
It's been nearly an hour
Since I thought of you

But you're not answering the phone
I'd settle for a busy tone
At least that I'd know that you're okay
A girl like you ain't meant to go away, oh

Now you're gone, there's nothing else I want
Now that it's over, there's nothing else I want
What have I done? Looks like I was wrong
Is everything really meant to change?
I guess we're like water and a flame, water and a flame

I'm tired of this empty house
I need a drink to get me out
A couple more 'til I forget your name

I saw a boy that looked like you
I didn't know quite what to do
It took a power of will to break my stare
I realized what I wanted wasn't there

Now you're gone, there's nothing else I want
Now that it's over, there's nothing else I want
Is everything really meant to change?
I guess we're like water and a flame, water and a flame

If you see me coming
I look away, I look away
And if your mind is made up
I look away, I will look away

If your worry bound
I'm okay, I'm okay, yes I am
All this sorrow and this pain
Is going to go away

Now you're gone, there's nothing else I want
Now that it's over, there's nothing else I want
What have I done? Looks like I was wrong
Is everything really meant to change
I guess we're like water and a flame, water and a flame
