I feel I’ve been here before Staring calmly at the open door I knew you’d be back this way You spoke softly, said you couldn’t stay You’d hoped to find me a changed man I know I haven’t; please understand It’s in the way you move me Running in circles, and I can’t break free I can feel it coming ‘round again Love begins just to end again Around and around, here we go again Love begins just to end again In every path there comes a time When past and present meet and roads divide Which way are you gonna go Left or right, high or low When did you know That this was the end And how can I go When we were just beginning To end …again I can feel it comin’ down again Love begins just to end again Against the tide it’s sink or swim again Love begins just to end again Begins …to end …(here we go) again

I’ve been searching, can’t seem to find my way Seems the nights get darker each and every day This time I’ve wandered too far from home Friends all around me, but I feel alone I feel lost and broken, bent out of place Shall I stay, or do you need some space Different means all lead to the same end How can we even try to pretend I need a secondhand heart Only slightly ripped apart I need someone who will always be around Unrequited from the start Feel I was born to play the part Give me someone who will never let me down Sure I don’t miss what was missing But oh how I miss kissing you (of course I do) I miss your lips, your hips, your thighs Miss the sparkle of your eyes I know it’s gone now but I don’t know why How did this become of me How was I too blind to see That the one you loved was no longer me Was my heart in your hands just a pawn Feelings faded like the night at dawn Where was it that we went wrong How am I supposed to heal When I don’t know what it is I feel Was it really ever real I know kindness is contagious So come on be courageous Give your love away With a secondhand heart Only slightly ripped apart Gotta somehow get my feet back on the ground Unrequited from the start No one’s born to play that part Just find someone who will never let you down Don’t let me down

She’s weighed down by the colors of the wind A bird so afraid to fly, regretful of her sins She thinks of what she’s done, all she can’t undo “I can’t say these things (she says), not to you” Words… without eyes to illustrate Words… nor voice to communicate Words… telling a story she’s told a thousand times in silence Her fingers are stained with unspoken fears She struggles to see the page through the falling tears Unformed thoughts dance upon her tongue The hurt’s not over yet, the healing has just begun in Words… without eyes to illustrate Words… nor voice to communicate Words… telling a story she’s told a thousand times… Words… without eyes to illustrate Words… why can’t you communicate in Words… a story you’ve told a thousand times

Still clinging to a past Now called into question Rejection (of affection) More times than I care to mention I’m so tired of this loneliness This aching need that is never met It’s been so long and I’ve hurt so much Feel small and ugly and out of touch Will I know When it’s really happening again Will it show If it is real or just pretend Wounds are weeping Beneath a bruised and blackened sky Like a broken bone (never set right) A broken heart lingers like an endless night Seems by now there should be a cure A better way to endure To put together what’s been torn apart How I wish I could change your heart You know I don’t believe in regret Just trying to remember to forget Taking each day as it comes No looking back, now I’m moving on But will I know When it’s really happening Will it show Might I mistake it for a dream Will I know When it’s really happening again Will It show If it is real or just pretend
