"Hi love, it's your girlfriend.
Sorry I missed the chance to talk with you.
Leave me a message
and I'll call you back just as soon as I can.
Talk to you soon, baby. Bye bye."

The road I've walked for my whole life
has brought me to this crossroads
and I'm standing here beside you
I know you've never been someone
to take things on a leap of faith
Please trust me once and never cry again
Hold my hand
We can take this slowly
and see where it might lead
Going into (x3) - Going into you

"I have a really busy day tomorrow...
I might be able to call you tomorrow evening."

And everything seemed to make sense
The first time that things seemed to fall in place
Just for a little while
And now my hopes and dreams are burning down

Claw out my eyes
I'd rather be blind
than to see you turn around
and walk away from me
Tear off my ears
I'd rather be deaf
than hear you saying goodbye
Lucky ones will never share what we've shared,
for I'm damned to know exactly just what might have been
Can't somebody stop this? I feel like I'm drowning,
and everywhere I turn, the water's deeper

It would tear out my heart to be nothing more to you
than a smile that occasionally crosses your face
Twenty-five years from now, what will we have?
A pile of ash called "what could have been"?

Treasures can slip through your fingertips
and sapphires melt in your hands
As I gaze in your jaded eyes,
I pray that this road isn't ending

Walking down this road
I thought I felt you hold my hand
But looking, I can see my palm is empty
How can you turn from me?
All that I wanted
was to catch the stars and lay them at your feet

It would tear out my heart to be nothing more to you
than a smile that occasionally crosses your face

Treasures can slip through your fingertips
and sapphires melt in your hands
You turn to me with your jaded eyes,
and I'm scared that I know how this ends

And everything fell into place
But now it is falling apart
I'm trying to hold on,
but I can see you fading

Be quick, or you've missed it
Sometimes when our backs are turned, the choice is made
Once in a lifetime
If you didn't see it coming, then you're much too late
This self-constructed prison is comfortable and warm,
but I can't escape the feeling that there must be something more
Everything we've been through that's made us who we are
has brought us here, and now the choice is ours to make
I'm begging you, I'm pleading on my knees
I can't believe that this was just a big mistake
From jeweled gemstone memories
to jaded guarded energies
to just gentle victory,
I know we could last
Tell me what I've got to do
Tell me what I've got to do
to get inside - get inside your heart
(Get inside your heart)

Where do we go
when there are no more conspiracies?
When there's only you and only me
seeing each other for the first time?
I pledge myself
If you stumble, I will carry you
and wipe away the tears if you will mine

And I'm holding out for a miracle,
but I'm scared to let go of the bird in my hand
and afraid that I've run out of time for a second chance
I want to drown myself in your eyes
(I want to drown myself)
I want to believe, but I'm scared that you're lying
Tell me there's hope for the ghost of a second chance
For the ghost of a second chance

"Let me tell you something, my friend.
Hope is a dangerous thing.
Hope can drive a man insane."

Chances are meant, meant to be taken
But my life's so fragile and it's breaking into pieces
Somebody help me, I feel like I'm dying
And I'm reaching for your hand, but it's not there
And I pray we won't know what we're missing
and we'll never imagine what might have been
But twenty-five years from now, I'll still hold on
to a fading dream of me and you
Of me and you

Treasures have slipped through my fingertips
and the sapphire vanished from my hand
I'll never forget the look in your eyes
when you lied and said this wasn't ending
Treasures have slipped through my fingertips
and the sapphire vanished from my hand
I say goodbye to your jaded eyes
as we reach our unnatural end
