Watching the clock on the wall
Been a while since you called
I can't help but wait
It's late and I can't get no sleep

Something's different this time
It just doesn't feel right
Have we broken in two?
Am I really gonna lose you tonight?

You come walking in
Tears in your eyes
Pretending like it's alright

(Chorus:)
But I know you're leaving
I know that smile
I can tell you've been crying
You're gonna say goodbye

I wish I could stop you
But you've made up your mind
I beg you don't go
But I already know you're leaving
(Chorus)

Where does the time go?
Between goodbye and hello
How did we come to this is there something we missedalong the way

With your bags at the door
I wanna pull you in close
And hold you once more even though

#Chorus

Here come the sleepless nights
Here come the tears I'm gonna cry
Here comes the last goodbye leaving us behind
Oh this can't be right

#Chorus
