When I last saw you
You seemed the same not much had changed
Then I walked past your window
You were there with somebody else and I knew their name

But I still feel the same
Should I just walk on by
If you're with someone else
I'll surely die, oh, I would surely die

Don't wake me if I'm dreaming
You know what I am dreaming of
That you want me to want you
Well, I still want your love

I cannot carry on, now that we're through
I used to have the best times with you
Everyday is the same when I'm not with you
It's winter again and there's nothing to do
Now that you're gone I cannot carry on

My world is empty but I feel no pain
I'll never fall in love again
And if you're new love should let you down
Don't you think twice, just hurry around

You know that I'll be waitin'
To have you back with me again
And if you do not want me
Tell me that this is the end

I cannot carry on, now that we're through
I used to have the best times with you
Everyday is the same when I'm not with you
It's winter again and there's nothing to do
Now that you're gone, I cannot carry on

When I last saw you
You seemed the same not much had changed
Then I walked past your window
You were there with somebody else and I knew their name

Don't wake me if I'm dreaming
You know what I am dreaming of
That you want me to want you
Well, I still want your love

I cannot carry on, now that we're through
I used to have the best times with you
Everyday is the same when I'm not with you
It's winter again and there's nothing to do
Now that you're gone

I cannot carry on, now that we're through
I used to have the best times with you
Everyday is the same when I'm not with you
It's winter again and there's nothing to do
Now that you're gone, I cannot carry on
