(Shh)

You warned me that you were gonna leave
I never thought you would really go
I was blind, but, baby, now I see
I broke your heart,
Now I know that I was bein' such a fool,
And I didn't deserve you

I don't wanna fall asleep, 'cuz I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene,
But I'm dying without your love
Begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone if I know that I can't have you

Looking at the letter that you left,
( The letter that you left, will I ever get you back? )
Wonderin' if I'll ever get you back
Dreaming about when I'll see you next
( When I'll see you next, will I ever get you back? )
Knowing that I never will forget
( I won't forget, I won't forget )
That I was bein' such a fool,
And I still don't deserve you

I don't wanna fall asleep, 'cuz I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene,
'Cuz I'm dying without your love (yeah! )
I'm begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you

So tell me what we're fighting for
Cause I know that the truth means so much more
Cause you would if you could, don't lie.
Cause I'll give everything that I've got left to show you I mean what I have said
I know I was such a fool, but I can't live without you

I don't wanna fall asleep, I don't know if I'll get up
I don't wanna cause a scene,
But I'm dying without your love
I'm begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you.

(Yeah!)

Don't wanna fall asleep ( don't wanna fall asleep ),
Cause I don't know if I'll get up ( who knows if I'll get up? )
I don't wanna cause a scene,
'Cuz I'm dying without your love
I'm begging to hear your voice ( let me hear your voice );
Tell me you love me, too. ( tell me you love me, too )
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you
