How can you leave me this way? It's just the way I came.
Your fleeting glance rolls to the distance far away.
'Cause there's a sunrise there, another gorgeous day.
So leave me here, in the dark. I'd want it that way.
I always wanted things to work out in time.
I didn't know that meant I would hang out to dry.
I feel so helpless 'cause there's nothin' I can do
But sit and wait around for someone like you.

Oh, the puzzle I spoke of, it's pieces are still gone.
Out of ten thousand, it's five to me belong.
And arm's reach away, love it will remain,
And fade quickly, but not as quickly as it came.

The temptation of your bed caught up with me.
Oh and my heart did not know what to believe.
The candle on the bookcase twisted and it turned.
I should have thought for a minute I was being forwarned.
And the sunlight came and drowned out your face.
And a dark shadow was found later in it's place.
The love you may have held for me has now gone to waste
and all that remains is a memory of the way you taste.

Oh, the puzzle I spoke of, it's pieces are still gone.
Out of ten thousand, it's five to me belong.
And arm's reach away, love it will remain,
And fade quickly, but not as quickly as it came.
Oh, the puzzle I spoke of, it's pieces are still gone.
Out of ten thousand, it's five to me belong.
And arm's reach away, love it will remain,
And fade quickly, but not as quickly as it came.
