  • [Verse 1]
    There's a thousand words that I could say
    To make you come home, yeah
    Seems so long ago you walked away
    Left me alone
    And I remember what you said to me
    You were acting so strange
    And maybe I was too blind to see
    That you needed a change

    Was it something I said
    To make you turn away
    To make you walk out and leave me cold
    If I could just find a way
    To make it so that you were right here
    Right now

    I've been sitting here
    Can't get you off my mind
    (Can't get you off my mind)
    I've tried my best to be a man and be strong
    I drove myself insane
    Wishing I could touch your face
    (Touch your face)
    But the truth remains you're

    Gone (You're)
    Gone (Baby you're)
    Gone (Girl you're gone, baby girl you're)
    Gone (You're)
    Gone (You're)

    [Verse 2]
    Now I don't wanna make excuses, baby
    Won't change the fact that you're gone...no, no
    But if there's something that I could do
    Won't you please let me know?
    The time is passing so slowly now
    Guess that's my life without you
    (Guess that's my life without you)
    And maybe I could change my every day
    But baby I don't want to

    [Bridge 2]
    So I'll just hang around
    And find some things to do
    To take my mind off missing you take my mind off missing you
    And I know in my heart
    You can't say that you don't love me too
    Please say you do (Yeah)

    [Pre-Hook & Hook]


    [Verse 3]
    What will I do
    If I can't be with you
    Tell me where will I turn to
    Baby who will I be
    Now that we are apart
    Am I still in your heart
    Baby why don't you see
    That I need you here with me
