    Did you ever wish
    (Wish)
    You could get
    Back something
    (Uh, huh)
    That you did in your past
    (Yeah)

    If it wasn't for me
    I know what we had
    Would definitely gonna last

    I admit
    (Admit)
    That we say some things
    (Uh, huh)
    We don't mean
    When we're mad
    (Yeah)

    But I realize
    (Yeah)
    That I've been foolish
    I never should have
    (Yeah)
    Turned my back

    'Cause it's
    A cold world
    When you
    Are out there
    (Uh huh)
    All alone
    (All alone)

    So many times
    That I wanted to just
    Pick up the phone
    (Up the phone)

    And tell you
    Ooh, baby
    Baby
    I miss your love

    And so

    Back no more

    And I want you
    To touch me
    Like I never left
    Come give me
    What I'm missing
    Like I never left
    (Yeah, yeah)

    Do you think
    (Think)
    We could pick up
    (Uh, huh)
    Where we left off
    Before the day
    (The day, yeah)

    That I told you
    It was over
    Packed my things
    And moved away
    (Moved away)

    'Cause I see
    (See)
    That without you
    (Uh, huh)
    My world is just
    An empty place
    (Place)

    Taking one step away
    (Yeah)
    From you feels
    Like a million miles away
    (Yeah)

    'Cause it's
    A cold world
    When you
    Are out there
    (Uh, huh)
    All alone
    (All alone)

    So many times
    I wanted to just
    Pick up the phone
