A friend of mine told me that you were down here last night
I almost called him a liar but I see he was right,
Yeah, he was right.

I'm over my anger but that's about all
It's hard to recover from that kind of fall
A fool never knows when to give up
For years I remember those long nights of love

But I don't go back, anymore
My heart's locked it's windows and bolted it's door
It's like trying to hold back the sea from the shore
No I, don't go back anymore

You're still just as pretty as you were back then
If I didn't know you, I'd fall again
So don't smile and tell me that you still care
Don't stir up my feelings, it just isn't fair

I don't go back, anymore
My heart's locked it's windows and bolted it's door
It's like trying to hold back the sea from the shore
No I, don't go back, anymore

No I, don't go back, anymore

A friend of mine told me you might be down here tonight
