I whispered you
We played the game,
Words I thought I'd never say.
But then we tossed the rules away.

Could deny it
Justify it,
Oh, I can feel you,
But we both know that we went too far.
And I need you,

No matter wherever you are.
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down,
But I can't lie to my heart.
I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round.
But baby, I just can't lie to my heart.

I have loved you
Longer than you've even known.
When you hurt, I hurt.
I'm your flesh, and you're my bone.
If I could only
Be two people,
Darlin', I swear we'd both be with you.
But I'm helpless.
Oh, I know I'm selfish,

I want you, and nothing else will do!
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down,
But I can't lie to my heart.
Rippin' me right apart.
I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round,

Been hiding too long.
I won't pretend anymore.
I won't go on like before.
I'm not that strong!
Oh, I can feel it when I'm near you.


[Guitar Interlude]
It's not healthy to need you this way.
Try to fight it, get inside it,
But this pain is stronger than me, and it won't go away!

But I can't lie to my heart.
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down,
Rippin' me right apart.

I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round,
But I can't lie to my heart.
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down,
Not anymore!
I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round.

I can't lie anymore!!
Baby, I can't. Baby, I can't.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Woah, woah. Woah.
No, baby, I just can't lie to my heart

    He's in love and can't be with the one he loves. He's not sure they feel the same and this has been going on a long time. He wants to let go and is afraid. It's pure torture, believe me, i know.
