Michael Bolton – Desperate Heart lyrics

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

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


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


I can't believe your love for me is gone
