Oh I thought you'd always be right here
Never thought I'd watch you disappear

Through it all, I'm holdin' on
I tried to make right of what went wrong
What would it take for you to see
I left you with the best of me
And I tried to forget everything you never said

Don't tell me it's too late
I'll wait for the moment you say
Say that you'll stay
'Cause I won't let go
And I need to know
That you won't be the one who got away

Today I have to face the truth
Can't replace, can't find another you

But through it all, I'm holdin' on
Tryin' to make right of what went wrong
What would it take, for you to see
That I've left you with the best of me

Don't tell me it's too late
I'll wait for the moment you say
Say that you'll stay
'Cause I won't let go
And I need to know
That you won't be the one who got away

We're losing time
Can I change your mind?
We're slippin' out
Can I bring you back somehow?

Don't tell me it's too late
I'll wait for the moment you say
Say that you'll stay
And don't give up tonight
This time I won't let you be the one who got away
'Cause I won't let go
I need to know
That you won't be the one who got away

No I won't let go
I need to know
That you won't be the one who got away
