Ooh hear me, ooh hear me
Time to tell the truth, no more lying
By the light of a candle
Through the base of a wineglass
You could almost take me for the real thing

But I know in my heart of hearts
I could never live up to what you want me to be
In the heat of temptation in a moment of crisis
I could never, never, never be what you need

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck
I've almost run out of time

Ooh forgive me, ooh forgive me
I don't mean to share all my fears
Like the man in the middle
Says he just passes on decision
I could always find someone to put the blame on

But I know in my heart of hearts
There is nobody else it was me from the start
As God is my witness, no matter the score
I could never, I could never not do it again

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

--------

I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

--------

Ooh believe me, ooh believe me
I don't mean to hurt you, no more crying
A wolf needs no reason to hunt and kill it's prey
He could no more change than give up breathing

So I know in my heart of hearts
I will always be the way that I am
In the joy of a moment, in the blackest despair
I will never, never, never let anyone in

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time....
