  • Sorry, I know I'm late.
    Guess I lost all track of time.
    Started walking and couldn't stop,
    turning it over in my mind.
    Tried to make some sense of it,
    trying to make the pieces fit.
    I thought I covered my tracks so well,
    but now he says he knew about it from the start.

    Yeah, he knew about us all along.
    If there was any other way,
    No, don't you think I've tried to find it?
    Don't you think I want to stay?
    If there was any other way,
    no, there's no way out of this.
    There just ain't any other way.

    Mmmm.
    Maybe I'd better be leaving now.
    But there's something
    I want you to understand before I go.
    Sometimes we don't have a choice,
    when we think that we really do.
    I just have to see you, darlin
    one more time if only just to say goodbye.

    'Cause he knew about us all the time.
    If there was any other way,
    No, don't you think I've tried to find it?
    Don't you think I want to stay?
    If there was any other way,
    no, there's no way out of this.
    There just ain't any other way.

    I never wanted it to be like this.
    I never meant to get serious.
    And now the thought of losing you
    takes some getting used to.

    If there was any other way,
    No, don't you think I've tried to find it?
    Don't you think I want to stay?
    If there was any other way,
    no, there's no way out of this.
    There just ain't any other way.

  • Shreyas from Mumbai, IndiaBeautiful way she (Celine Dion) has sung it! After singing this song she clearly had indirectly taunted her rivals through the line "Don't you think I want to stay?"
