Tried to be your lover, tried to be your friend
Dreams of love surrounded me, thought I could pretend
It wasn’t a surprise, when I found myself alone
I gave up everything I owned
And I’m livin’ here….
Without you, without you, I struggle to be strong
Without you, without you, things keep going wrong
Without you, without you, morning never comes!
Without you, without you, all my dreams are gone
Don’t want to leave, I know I can’t stay
Built a wall between us, now it blocks our way
You tried to talk about it, I just turned away
Picked my clothes up on the street, my ticket says
I’m leavin’ here today….
If I knew I’d feel this way
I would have tossed that ticket away
Bring my clothes back through the door
And lay them down inside our drawer
