Chorus
Every day is a long time waiting
Every night is alone and cryin'
Your memory is a long time fadin'
Every tear has a reason why, every tear has a reason why

Echos are fillin' the hallways, bringin' back those better times
The smell and the touch and the taste of you won't leave my mind
You're a ghost in the house we lived in, I can feel you everywhere
I know better than to hope that you still care
But I keep lookin' for you out there

Chorus

You came in like the dawn of a new day, now the dark is settlin' in
I don't know if I can find a life worth livin' again
In the night, in the still of the shadows, I can't help but wonder why
I bought into a trouble that no one else would buy
And every tear has a reason why

I chased you until you caught me, caught me so unaware
Look at all the things you taught me about a dead end love affair

Chorus
