Lyrics

  • IF I HAD A REASON I’D TELL YOU WHAT IT IS
  • MUST I EXPLAIN HOW I FEEL
  • I’VE TRIED AND I’VE TRIED TO MAKE IT SO CLEAR
  • BUT MY TIME IS JUST WASTED I FEAR
  • WELL ITS ONLY AN OLD SONG BUT IT SERVES ITS PURPOSE WELL
  • BY THE CRY IN YOUR VOICE I CAN TELL
  • WHEN YOU SING THERE’S A FEELING BEHIND THE WORDS
  • THAT BRINGS IT ALL BACK AGAIN
  • I’M REACHING, I’M REACHING
  • WHILE YOU SLIP AWAY
  • I’M SEARCHING FOR WORDS I CAN SAY
  • I’M LISTENING, I’M LISTENING
  • TRYIN’ NOT TO HEAR
  • YOU SAY THAT WE MIGHT MEET SOME DAY
  • THERE’S A PICTURE THAT’S FADED AND CURLING FROM ITS FRAME
  • OF A FACE THAT SMILES PATIENTLY
  • IT MIGHT SMILE FOREVER TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER
  • BUT I MUST WAIT AND SEE*
  • I’M REACHING, I’M REACHING
  • WHILE YOU SLIP AWAY
  • I’M SEARCHING FOR WORDS I CAN SAY
  • I’M LISTENING, I’M LISTENING
  • TRYIN’ NOT TO HEAR
  • YOU SAY THAT WE MIGHT MEET SOME DAY
  • ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT WE BOTH WANT TO KNOW
  • BUT THOSE ANSWERS KEEP EVADING ME
  • THERE'S RHYMES AND THERE'S REASONS
  • THERE'S RIGHTS AND THERE'S WRONGS
  • FOR BEING WHAT YOU ARE TO ME
  • IF I HAD A REASON I’D TELL YOU WHAT IT IS
  • WOULD YOU DO THE SAME THING FOR ME
  • BECAUSE THE MINUTE YOU GO
  • THERE'S ONE THING I KNOW
  • THAT THE DAY WILL MEAN NOTHING FOR ME
