  • So I guess it's over baby and déjà vu again
    Who'd have thought that time don't stop and
    Somehow girl, the world keeps spinning and
    I guess I've turned myself into a solitary man
    Ain't like I'm the only one that's in the shoes
    That I am

    Do you hear that?
    I'm right back
    At the sound of lonely calling
    Do you hear that?
    It's where I'm at
    It's the sound of teardrops falling down, down
    A slamming door and a lesson learned
    I let another lover crash and burn

    I know that it might sound jaded
    And I have to say
    I think love is overrated
    But I don't like throwing it away

    I know you could probably tell me
    Right where I went wrong
    Some guys can't have all the luck
    If others don't sing sad songs

    Do you hear that?
    I'm right back
    At the sound of lonely calling
    Do you hear that?
    It's where I'm at
    It's the sound of teardrops falling down, down
    A slamming door and a lesson learned
    I let another lover crash and burn, that's right

    Another lover
    Another lover crash and burn
    Ooh yeah

    Do you hear that?
    I'm right back
    At the sound of lonely calling
    Do you hear that?
    It's where I'm at
    It's the sound of teardrops falling down, down
    A slamming door and a lesson learned
    I let another lover crash and burn, yeah
    I let another lover crash and burn
