We were once so good together
So close we couldn't see what's up ahead
Another one will give you pleasure
Then you'll turn your back on me
Don't tell me lies, I've heard them all before
You're never gonna change
Don't tell me why, I'm not interested in
What you have to say
Now trouble seems to seek you out
Attracted by the void that's left in you
So when you've had enough of living without
I hope you'll look within
But you won't so
You take one step forward and two steps back
But this time you're all on your own
Prove to me that I'm not wasting time on you
And all your paper promises
When you say that you've had enough
With all the trouble that you've been facing
Why can't you show that to me
Why can't you show that to me?
