lyrics

I’ll admit it.
I thought I’d see your face.
Somewhere out in that crowd,
Though that shadow of doubt,
It crept in like a cloud over me,
Then came pouring down.

I can’t quit it.
It’s something about this place.
And all these dim little rooms,
They remind me of you,
Two kids paying our dues,
We were singing,
Together.

I heard you found a new love.
Was he the one you were dreaming of?
When you’d had enough of me,
And the man you knew I’d never be?

So just forget it.
Cause I’m only passing through.
Just pour a cold one for me,
Scratch that -
Make it a neat.
I’ve got nowhere to be tonight,
But these wheels keep turning.

I heard you found a new love.
Was he the one you were dreaming of?
When you’d had enough of me,
And the man you knew I’d never ever be?

No, I can’t get away,
Cause every time I’m near you,
It’s like moths to the flame,
Even though I know it’s foolish,
And there’s nothing to gain…
Just like wishing away the rain.

I heard you found a new love.
Was he the one that you were dreaming of?
When you’d had enough of me,
And the man you knew I’d never be?

The man you knew I’d never be.

I heard you found a new love.
Was he the one you were dreaming of?
When you’d had enough of me,
And the man you knew I’d never be?
