  • So the story goes on down
    The less traveled road
    It's a variation on
    The one I was told
    And although it's not the same
    It's awful close, yeah

    In an ordinary fairy tale land
    There's a promise of a perfect happy end
    And I imagine having just short of that
    Is better than nothing

    So you'll be mine
    Forever and almost always
    And I'll be fine
    Just love me when you can
    And I'll wait patiently
    I'll wake up everyday
    Just hoping that you still care

    In the corner of my mind I know too well
    Oh, that surely even I deserve the best
    But instead of leaving
    I just put the issue to bed
    And outta my head

    Oh, and just when I believe
    You've changed for good
    Well, you go and prove me wrong
    Just like I knew you would
    When I run out of second chances
    You give me that look
    And you're off the hook

    Because you're mine
    Forever and almost always
    Oh, and I'm fine
    Just love me when you can
    And I'll wait patiently
    I'll wake up everyday
    Just hoping that you'll still care

    Oh, oh,
    What am I still doing here
    Oh, oh,
    It's all becoming so clear

    You'll be mine
    Forever and almost always
    It ain't right
    To just love me when you can, Oh
    I won't wait patiently
    Or wake up everyday
    Just hoping that you'll still care
    Forever and almost always
    No it ain't right
    To just love me when you, baby
    Ain't gonna wait patiently
    I won't wake up everyday
    Just hoping that you care

    Oh
