Verse
So it’s over
That’s all that she wrote
I go over and over
Ev’ry moment,
Note for note
She just walked out
Without a goodbye
I just don’t get it
I wish I knew why

Chorus
And now I can’t stop crying
‘Cause my heart just ain’t buying
The idea that she won’t be coming back to me
And so I keep on lying to myself
‘Cause I’m trying to believe
That it’s all just a bad dream
And when I awake
She’ll be lying in my arms
Lying in my bed next to me

Verse
So what do I say when somebody asks,
What happened to you two?
I thought it would last
You both were so happy;
You two got along
I’ll just say I just don’t get it
I don’t know what went wrong

Chorus
Meanwhile I can’t stop crying
‘Cause my heart just ain’t buying
The idea that she won’t be coming back to me
And so I keep on lying to myself
‘Cause I’m trying to believe
That it’s all just a bad dream
And when I awake
She’ll be lying in my arms
Lying in my bed next to me
