Games, changes and fears,
When will they go from here?
When will they stop?
I believe that fate has brought us here
And we should be together babe, but we're not
I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
And I'll keep my cool but I'm feelin'
I try to say good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear;
My world crumbles when you are not near
Good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear;
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
And I may seem alright
And smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front, just a front
And I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
And I'll keep my cool but I'm feelin'
I try to say good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession, may I be your possession
Boy I need your touch, your love kisses and such
With all my might I try but this I can't deny, deny

I play is off but I'm dreaming of you,
But I'm dreaming of you babe
I'll keep my cool but I'm feelin'
I try to say good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Good-bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it (Sent of love), it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near (Your love, kisses and such)
I try to say good-bye and I choke (Good-bye and I'm choking)
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

    We all try. What's important is to keep trying. We all stumble. To me to live is to try. To feel. To remember to breathe. Find something to inspire and try that
