Out on the road and a refugee
Thinking about it and I cry out loud
I wouldn't ask you to comfort me
Knowing what I know now
We had a live and it went all wrong
I had a dream and you let me down
I wouldn't ask you to take that on
Knowing what I know now
Would I ask a seeing man to go blind
Would I ask a sane man to lose his mind
Could I expect you to come back somehow
Knowing what I know now
As much as you are in my heart
As much as I want you around
I wouldn't ask you to play that part
Knowing what I know now
Would I ask a seeing man to go blind
Would I ask a sane man to lose his mind
Could I expect you to come back somehow
Knowing what I know now
As much as you are in my heart
As much as I want you around
I wouldn't ask you to play that part
Knowing what I know now
