The love that you had
In your heart is gone
Any touch of sincerity
Any trace of compassion
What hardened your heart
What turned it to stone
What made you forget
You were in love with someone

Your hands don't reach out
Your voice doesnt't't call me
I know youve stopped listening
Your eyes look straight through me

If nights are like this
Id rather be alone
Who said you could forget
You were in love with someone

Tell me what hardened your heart
Tell me what turned it to stone
Tell me what made you forget
You were in love with someone

Was I wrong to forgive
Your indiscretions
Should I have been more hysterical
Less understanding

If you're looking for a villain
Go on assume the role
But don't say that it's my fault
That you're not in love with someone

Tell me what hardened your heart
Tell me what turned it to stone
Tell me what made you forget
You were in love with someone

Tell me there's someone in your life
Ill fight to keep your for my own
Tell me because I really want to know
Why you can't be in love with someone
