Lyrics:

Dreaming of the love I lost, the day the final bridge was crossed
Sometimes I wish, that I could just forget.
But the memory lingers yet, and it hangs around,
Leaviní me low and leaviní me down.
Everywhere I roam, there is nobody home.
Even I should know, when it ainít my day there is no other way.

I begin to wake up to, how wrong it was to cling to you
Sometimes I wish, to hold you to my heart,
íCause I canít keep us apart. Forgiving you,
Was the easiest thing that I ever could do.
Everywhere I go, there is no one I know.
Even I can see, itís too late now to believe in a vow.

As I wander I return, to days gone by thereís much to be learned
Sometimes I wish, that miracles could be.
But at best I fail to see, any happeniní,
Some gotta lose and some gotta win.
Everywhere I roam, there is nobody home.
Even I should know, when it ainít my day there is no other way.

Everywhere I go, there is no one I know.
Even I can see, itís too late now to believe in a vow.
Youíre leaviní right now
