lyrics

I KNOW WE’RE TOO DIFFERENT YOU AND I
IT’S DIFFERENCES WE CAN`T GET BY
NOW WE’RE JUST TWO SOULS IN THE WORLD
ANOTHER LOST BOY AND LOST GIRL BUT

IF I FIND YOUR HEAD RESTED OVER ME
YOUR BODY CLOSER THAN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE
WHEN I HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT IN MY EAR
IT TAKES ME BACK TO HOW WE USED TO FEEL
EVERY TIME I LOOK YOU IN THE EYE
I’LL BE HOLDING YOU CLOSE IN MY MIND
CAUSE WHAT WE LEFT WE NEVER LEFT BEHIND
HONEY, WE`RE STILL SAYING GOODBYE

I MIGHT LOVE A HUNDRED AND I COULD LOVE MORE
BUT I’LL NEVER LOVE ANOTHER THE WAY I LOVED HER
WHAT WE HAD WAS BETTER THAN THE BEST
NOW WE HAVE TO LET THOSE FEELINGS REST

BUT, IF I FIND YOUR HEAD RESTED OVER ME
YOUR BODY CLOSER THAN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE
WHEN I HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT IN MY EAR
IT TAKES ME BACK TO HOW WE USED TO FEEL
EVERY TIME I LOOK YOU IN THE EYE
I’LL BE HOLDING YOU CLOSE IN MY MIND
CAUSE WHAT WE LEFT WE NEVER LEFT BEHIND
HONEY, WE`RE STILL SAYING GOODBYE

AS MUCH AS I KNEW IT WOULDN’T LAST
I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD END
WATCHING THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
TO SEE A LOVER TURN INTO A FRIEND

OUR FATE WAS DECIDED
THE CARDS WERE CAST
BUT WE DIDN`T UNDERSTAND
THAT OUR TIME WAS CLOSING IN FAST
TURNING OVER THE SAME CARDS AGAIN AND AGAIN

WE ALMOST PLANNED OUR LIVES BY WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
I COULD ALMOST SEE THE LAWN AND WHITE PICKET FENCE
NOW I’M LIVING NOT LOOKING DOWN THAT ROAD
NO SENSE THINKING ABOUT GROWING OLD

BUT, IF I FIND YOUR HEAD RESTED OVER ME
YOUR BODY CLOSER THAN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE
WHEN I HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT IN MY EAR
IT TAKES ME BACK TO HOW WE USED TO FEEL
EVERY TIME I LOOK YOU IN THE EYE
I’LL BE HOLDING YOU CLOSE IN MY MIND
CAUSE WHAT WE LEFT WE NEVER LEFT BEHIND
HONEY, WE`RE STILL SAYING GOODBYE

THERE’S NO ONE TO BLAME AND NO LINES WERE CROSSED
WE JUST WALKED A WAY AND NO LOVE WAS LOST
BUT I KNOW I NEVER SLEPT TOO LONG
AFRAID WHEN I WOKE UP THAT YOU’D BE GONE

SO, IF I FIND YOUR HEAD RESTED OVER ME
YOUR BODY CLOSER THAN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE
WHEN I HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT IN MY EAR
IT TAKES ME BACK TO HOW WE USED TO FEEL
EVERY TIME I LOOK YOU IN THE EYE
I’LL BE HOLDING YOU CLOSE IN MY MIND
CAUSE WHAT WE LEFT WE NEVER LEFT BEHIND
HONEY, WE`RE STILL SAYING GOODBYE
