  • I remember years ago
    Someone told me I should take
    Caution when it comes to love
    I did

    And you were strong and I was not
    My illusion, my mistake
    I was careless, I forgot
    I did

    And now when all is done
    There is nothing to say
    You have gone and so effortlessly
    You have won
    You can go ahead tell them

    Tell them all I know now
    Shout it from the roof tops
    Write it on the sky line
    All we had is gone now

    Tell them I was happy
    And my heart is broken
    All my scars are open
    Tell them what I hoped would be
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible

    Falling out of love is hard
    Falling for betrayal is worse
    Broken trust and broken hearts
    I know, I know

    And thinking all you need is there
    Building faith on love and words
    Empty promises will wear
    I know, I know

    And now when all is done
    There is nothing to say

    And if you're done with embarrassing me
    On your own you can go ahead tell them

    Tell them all I know now
    Shout it from the roof tops
    Write it on the sky line
    All we had is gone now

    Tell them I was happy
    And my heart is broken
    All my scars are open
    Tell them what I hoped would be
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible

    I remember years ago
    Someone told me I should take
    Caution when it comes to love
    I did

    Tell them all I know now
    Shout it from the roof tops
    Write it on the sky line
    All we had is gone now

    Tell them I was happy
    And my heart is broken
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, hoped would be
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible
    Impossible, impossible

  • Dave from Cardiff, Wales"This cover of Shontelle's hit song..."?! That's a laugh considering Shontelle's version was also a cover! It was originally written in 2005 by Arnthor Birgisson!
