One night, one empty room
One man getting over you
One star, one lonely moon
I make a wish I know will never come true

You'll call my name
And you'll beg me to hold you again
But the truth remains
And I'm only a fool who can't help but pretend


CHORUS:
It's all over but I'm holding on
I can't let go till the love is gone
It's all over but I keep holding on
With a desperate heart
My desperate heart


Some nights I try in my mind
To see myself loving someone new
Still I know I'm wasting my time
No one can ever take the place of you


So I close my eyes
I swear I feel you here by my side
Bet it's all, it's only a lie
That I need to believe for my heart to survive


CHORUS:


All this time I've been drowning in hopeless illusion
I've been keeping inside
That someday you'll walk out of the shadows
And back into my life


CHORUS:


I can't believe your love for me is gone
