Well it wasn’t very long ago
I was lost within the dark shadows
So cold and lonely, and so afraid
Needed comfort, needed saved
Well you grabbed my hand and you led me out
Through the maze of misery, the walls of doubt
I was falling fast, so you grabbed my arm
But you’re loosening your grip, and I can’t hold on
Baby, please don’t change, don’t turn around
‘Cause it was you that picked me off the ground – and now

I can’t hide the pain inside
And I can’t fight the lonely nights
Tossing and turning, my crying eyes burning
If only dreams could be reality
If only tears could give the will to live
Slipping and crawling, desperately falling
You know, I’m only here ‘cause I’m breathing for you
You know, my only fear is of leaving you
But since you’re changing, that fear is fading

I remember the day you helped me up
I felt so helpless, so cold and numb
A broken heart had done it’s job
Crying endlessly, and left to rot
Well you dried my tears, filled my lungs with air
Don’t know where I’d be if you weren’t there
Don’t turn around, don’t change on me
‘Cause it was you all this time that kept me breathing – but now

I can’t hide the pain inside
And I can’t fight the lonely nights
Tossing and turning, my crying eyes burning
If only dreams could be reality
If only tears could give the will to live
Slipping and crawling, desperately falling
You know, I’m only here ‘cause I’m breathing for you
You know, my only fear is of leaving you
But since you’re changing, that fear is fading

Sinking lower, fading slower
Don’t change, or my life is over
Yea, I need you here, need you near
Leaving you’s my biggest fear
So stay the same, don’t ever change
Unless you want that fear to fade

I can’t hide the pain inside
And I can’t fight the lonely nights
Tossing and turning, my crying eyes burning
If only dreams could be reality
If only tears could give the will to live
Slipping and crawling, desperately falling
You know, I’m only here ‘cause I’m breathing for you
You know, my only fear is of leaving you
But since you’re changing, that fear is fading
