  • So if you go
    And leave recklessly
    We can only be me
    We can only be me
    That's something I
    Through the tons of my life
    Never wanted to be
    Never wanted to be

    But if you stay
    Just a bolt in the ball
    Then you'll never know
    Then you'll never know
    How you could miss
    Like the day light the way
    You're missing us now
    You're missing us now

    So listen to some reason
    There's nothing in your dreams
    But if you're getting even
    You're getting even
    Trying to get even
    Better start believing
    I can forgive
    And we can forget
    Even after all this
    Love and other nonsense we've made

    Now if we kiss
    Then the moon in the sky
    We'd linger a while
    We linger a while
    So ask to give just an inch more of night
    But you break from my life
    No more kiss, no more I

    But listen to some reason
    There's nothing in your dreams
    But if you're getting even
    You're getting even
    Trying to get even
    Better start believing
    I can forgive
    And we can forget
    Even after all this wrestling of conscience
    I can forgive
    And we can forget
    Even after all this
    Love and other nonsense

    It's the worst part of the best of me, best of me
    Love, I'm trying so hard to be free
    Worst of the best of me, best of me
    Love, I'm trying so hard to be free
    Lonely but free
    And out of love

    If you're getting even
    You're getting even
    If you're getting even
    You're getting even

    If you're getting even
    You're getting even
    Trying to get even
    Better start believing
    I can forgive
    And we can forget
    Even after all this wrestling of conscience
    I can forgive
    And we can forget
    Even after all this
    Love and other nonsense
    You're getting even
    You're getting even
    And I can forgive
    And we can forget
    You're getting even
    You're getting even
    And I can forgive
    And we can forget
    You're getting even
    You're getting even
    And I can forgive
    And we can forget
    You're getting even
    You're getting even
    (And I can forgive)
    (And we can forget)
