  • Should of been much further than this by now
    A little bit more gone a little less twisted around
    Should of been much better you'd think but I'm not,
    I'm still stuck, I'm still here, in this rut

    Looking back on everything that we had
    Holding on to words that we can't take back
    What am I to do with the past, when it's all that I have,
    And I can't get you back

    Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
    I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
    Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
    Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared
    Once, oh, once

    I remember you sayin' I was the one,
    And nothing could change that but you were wrong
    It's funny how life turns on a dime now we don't even talk
    I just stare at these walls

    And I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
    I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
    Everywhere that I go I'm reminded of us
    Where we've been all we've done and all the love that we shared
    Once, you made the world feel so right
    Once, you were my morning noon and night
    Why'd we slip away, why did it all change,
    How will I ever be the same

    Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
    I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
    Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
    Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

    Now I wait by the phone in the dark drunk on hope
    I'm so lost, I'm so low, and I just want you to know
    Everywhere that I go, I'm reminded of us
    Where we've been, all we've done, and all the love that we shared

    Should of been much further then this by now
    A little bit more gone a little less twisted around Writer/s: JEFFREY STEELE, KARA DIOGUARDI, STEPHEN PAUL ROBSON
