Laying in the after glow
I only want to learn what you know
But now you're leaving
How many hearts must you break?
How many calls must I make?
But now you're leaving
In this world all that I choose has come unbearable
But love is in your touch
Oh it's killing me so much
Only when tou leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
Fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Oh I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away
I only want to make this things last
So how could this have gone so fast
And now you're leaving
How many times must I learn
It' s only when you've gone that I burn
And now you're leaving
In the end, all that I left has come unbearable
It's hard to change your mind,
So leave it all behind
Only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
Fool enough to long
Only when you leave,you'llleave in danger
Oh I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away
