lyrics

If I think of you tonight
It'll only make things worse
I'll feel that emptiness inside
That comes when your heart hurts
And when I think about your smile
It tears a hole in me
If I could only sleep a while
Then I might find some peace
And I guess in time I'll see
That not everything comes down to you and me
But when you laugh it all becomes so clear to me
There's nothing I can do but wait for you so hopelessly
What is wrong with me
That I do this to myself
You're happy without me
You're in love with someone else
What do you think of at night
Do you have a sacred dream
None of my thoughts are worthwhile
I don't even know what they mean
And I hope in time you'll see
That maybe something might become of you and me
There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say
There's nothing I can do but wait for you for another day
Standing in the rain, I look up at your window
And all I feel is this numbing pain
The ache from being alone
And I know in time you'll see
That maybe everything comes down to you and me
There's so much I want to tell you, I want to say
And I don't know if I can hold it for another day
And I know in time you'll see
How every word you say could mean so much to me
I'm standing out here below your window in the cold
With such a passion in my heart and you don't even know
