Any second I would sing you to sleep
With kind words in mind and hearts on the sleeve
Leave nothing to chance and everything behind
Second chances pave the way to broken hearts
This is the moment where I tell you that I'm falling apart
And I'm stuck in reverse between the same damn lies

Oh no, there I go, optimistic to a fault
Go home, you can never go again
When anything at all is anything but you
I want nothing, my dear
This always ends in tears
You were my everything in all
And now my everywhere but here
This always ends in tears

Taking chances pave the wasy to broken hearts
This is the moment where I tell you that I'm falling apart
And I'm stuck in reverse between the same damn lies
We're tossing pennies, making wishes to make it right
Another lonely day, another lonely night
And I would give anything if you would only pick up the phone

Oh no, there I go, optimistic to a fault
Go home, you can never go again
When anything at all is anything but you
I want nothing, my dear
This always ends in tears
You were my everything in all
And now my everywhere but here
This always ends in tears
