The damage has been done
And I can't make you stay
But all I'm asking is for 30 seconds on the clock
To talk before you walk away

'Cause as the strings swell in
It's clear to me what could have been
If I was ready when you were

Here's my acceptance speech
Wish that I lived up to what you thought I'd be
'Cause now you're moving on
We're past the point of no return
But I accept the point I've had to learn
I tried to win and lost it all

Now you're a hostile crowd
And I've got nothing written down
I'm just fighting back the rage
Knowing I'm nothing to you now
And I don't know what to do
'Cause it's so hard to face the truth
Start to explain
But you stop me before I can get through

And you let the strings swell in
Don't want to know what could have been
If I was ready when you were

But please hear my acceptance speech
I wish that I lived up to what you thought I'd be
Now you're already gone
You watch me from out in the crowd
And laugh as the results are read aloud
That I'm the biggest loser of them all

'Cause I don't have you, I don't have you
And there's nothing left to do
So hard to let go
So hard but I know
We're past the point of no return
But I accept the point I've had to learn
I wanted more and lost it all
'Cause I don't have you
I don't have you
I don't have you
