  • Standing face to face
    Wrapped in your embrace
    I don't wanna let you go
    But you're already gone

    Now you kiss my cheek
    Soft and bittersweet
    I can read it in your eyes
    Baby, this is our goodbye

    Nothing more to say
    Nothing left to break
    I keep reaching out for you
    Hoping you might stay

    Nothing more to give
    Nothing left to take
    I keep reaching out for you
    Reaching out for you
    As you turn away

    Let go of my hand
    So I can feel again
    Nothing's gonna hurt as much
    As that final touch

    No we can't be friends
    'Cause I don't think I could take seeing you
    And knowing where we've been
    I hope you understand

    Nothing more to say
    Nothing left to break
    I keep reaching out for you
    Hoping you might stay

    Nothing more to give
    Nothing left to take
    I keep reaching out for you
    Reaching out for you
    As you turn away

    One step my heart is breaking
    One more my hands are shaking
    The door is closing
    And I just can't change it

    Nothing more to say
    Nothing left to break

    Nothing more to give
    Nothing left to take
    I keep reaching out for you
    Reaching out for you
    I keep reaching out for you
    Reaching out for you
    As you turn away,
    As you turn away,
    As you turn away Writer/s: CHARLES B. KELLEY, DAVE HAYWOOD, HILLARY DAWN SCOTT, MONTY POWELL
