  • I can't find a reason to let go
    Even though you've found a new love
    And she's what your dreams are made of
    I can find a reason to hang on
    What went wrong can be forgiven
    Without you, it ain't worth livin' alone

    Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    And sometimes I scream out your name
    What right does she have to take you away
    When for so long you were mine?

    I took out all the pictures of our wedding day
    It was a time of love and laughter
    Happy ever after
    But even those old pictures have begun to fade
    Please tell me she's not real
    And that you're really coming home to stay

    Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    And sometimes I scream out your name
    What right does she have to take your heart away
    When for so long you were mine?

    I can give you two good reasons
    To show you love's not blind
    He's two and she's four and you know
    They adore you
    So how can I tell them you've changed your mind

    Sometimes I wake up crying at night
    And sometimes I scream out your name
    What right does she have to take your heart away
    When for so long you were mine?
