You left me down, with not a chance to fall
My heart was on the line and I can't explain
To everyone that I, that I fell so in love with you
You left me waiting on the line

Waiting for you
That day was so difficult to cry myself to sleep
I knew that you would wait for me, but I was wrong
But I was wrong

Why, leaving me tonight
I pray it's only a while 'til she'll be back again
No, it's only in my head, it's everything you said
Tonight alone again, why

You came, the days grew dim for me
I knew we would be, but I thought we would see it out
For what we had was stronger than the things they knew
We knew

Why, leaving me tonight
I pray it's only a while 'til she'll be back again
No, it's only in my head, it's everything you said
Tonight alone again

Righteous, righteous
Leaving me tonight
Righteous, righteous
Don't leave me
No, don't go tonight

You'll see me walking away, I see you wanting to say
I pray that you would see me for me, don't walk away

And I will know that you are so true
To all that I am, finding you

And I want to get right, 'cause I don't walk around
And I want to see tonight, and I know your sound
It's like I've got to know, and I don't walk around
If I could only get right, this time I know I could

Why, leaving me tonight
I know it's only a while 'til she'll be back again
No, it's only in my head, it's everything you said
Tonight alone again, why

Righteous, righteous
Leaving me tonight
Righteous, righteous
Don't leave me tonight

Right, right, right
Righteous now, we pray
