It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who's the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now? Now that I need you
Tears on my pillow, wherever you go
I cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul

And if you don't come back, come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody else in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

I'm there at your side
I'm a part of all the things you are
But you've got a part of someone else
You've got to find your shining star

And where are you now? Now that I need you
Tears on my pillow, wherever you go
I cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul

And if you don't come back, come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody else in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
