I think I'll go it alone, you should've shown me if you cared
Lies will turn a heart into stone, few would have known me if they dared
Cause I'm takin' it back where it all began
The house on the cape, the place on the sand
I'd take it all back if it'd just make you understand


Girl how I've tried to forget you, now it would take more than I could buy
Sure I could lie to myself too, but that won't work seeing that I've tried


Cause I'm takin' it back where it all began
I'd live in a shack eating out of a can
I'd take it all back if it'd just make you understand


(Instrumental break)


Now that I'm feeling assured, you'd better watch your every move
Stop, think about every word, it's looking like you're going to lose


Cause I'm takin' it back where it all began
The house on the cape, the place on the sand
I'd take it all back if it'd just make you understand


You should've shown me if you cared (repeats out)
