Once again we sit in silence
After all is said and done
Only emptiness inside us
Baby, look what we've become
We can make a million promises
But we still won't change
It isn't right to stay together
When we only bring each other pain

Chorus:
I don't wanna cry
Don't wanna cry
Nothing in the world
Could take us back
To where we used to be
Though I've given you my heart and soul
I must find a way of letting go
'Cause baby, I don't wanna cry

Too far apart to bridge the distance
But something keeps us hanging on and on
Pretending not to know the difference
Denying what we had is gone
Every moment we're together
It's just breaking me down
I know we swore it was forever
But it hurts too much to stay around

Chorus

All the magic's gone
There's just a shadow of a memory
Something just went wrong
We can't go on make-believing

Chorus

    I have never experienced the loss of a good, solid relationship. This song expresses how that loss can run so deep when the connection gives way to mediocrity. Such an idea makes me cry everytime i touch this song--from listening to it to karaoking it to actually giving it voice! How does this evoke suuch strong emotion--when i never had anything past an infatuation? Go figure!
