  • All that time I was searching with nowhere to run to
    It started me thinking
    Wondering what I could make of my life
    And who'd be waiting
    Asking all kinds of questions to myself
    But never finding the answers

    Crying at the top of my voice
    And no one listening
    All this time, I still remember everything you said, oho
    There's so much you promised, how could I ever forget

    Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps
    Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this
    You know I want to, but I'm in too deep

    So listen, listen to me
    Ooh, you must believe me
    I can feel your eyes go through me
    But I don't know why

    Ooh, I know you're going but I can't believe
    It's the way that you're leaving
    It's like we never knew each other at all
    It may be my fault
    I gave you too many reasons, being alone
    When I didn't want to

    I thought you'd always be there
    I almost believed you
    All this time, I still remember everything you said, oho oh
    Ooh there's so much you promised, how could I ever forget

    Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps
    Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this
    You know I want to, but I'm in too deep
    So listen, listen to me
    I can feel your eyes go through me

    It seems I've spent too long
    Only thinking about myself, oho
    Now I want to spend my life
    Just caring 'bout somebody else

    Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps
    Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this
    You know I want to, but I'm in too deep
    You know I love you, but I just can't take this
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps
    Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this
    You know I want to, but I'm in too deep (you know I love you, but I just)
    You know I love you, but I just can't take this (but I just can't take this)
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps (you know I love you)
    Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this (you know I love you)
    You know I want to, but I'm in too deep (you know I love you, love you)
    You know I love you, but I just can't take this (I can't take this)
    You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps Writer/s: Anthony George Banks, Michael Rutherford, Phillip David Charles Collins
