The sunlight hits me and I shiver
I rub the sleep out of my eyes
I pull the mail box open
And hope to find a sweet surprise

I stumble back into the kitchen
I dump out last night's coffee grinds
I think the whole thing over
It's like a movie in my mind

Well they tell me
I'm gonna have to carry on without her
But I'm afraid that ain't the way I got it planned
I'm gonna take a walk today
I'll go the old familiar way
I'll walk up to her and I'll say,
"I've come to win you back Suzanne."

The beauty of this life is changing
When pressed against the cold, hard facts
The fact is I got restless
And you say you ain't coming back

So hello friendly next door neighbor
Hello bird up on the wire
The thought of her surrender
Spreads through me like a forest fire

Well they tell me...

How could you believe that you could get away from me so easy
What kind of man would let the woman of his dreams just go away
You said I'd never change before but when I knock upon your door
You'll see babe, the change in me babe
I'm on my knees babe
Looking at you from across the way

See her diamond earrings sparkle
Hear the pounding in my chest
I wish I had a dollar
For every one of my regrets

In the distance he's approaching
The ghost of who I might have been
As I walk home alone my
Memory's my only friend

Well they tell me....
