Look at what I've found
A broken man, he's fallen down
I know I should be careful, but oh he has me now
Still every time I touch you
I can feel her there
She's beating through your body
She's hidden everywhere
And she's more than I will ever be
She's more than you can see in me
I'm sure she's a lovely girl
I know that she deserves you
So tell me why we're doing this
Do I hide your loneliness?
If only for awhile
You know it's been awhile

And it's not right tonight
No, I'm not alright tonight

We're parked next to the water
Sitting in your car you whisper, "I'm fine, I'm fine
I never have been better"
I wish you'd told me earlier
If you had I wouldn't be here
But now I see you're a damn good liar
They can't know, don't let show
But I see more than you would believe
And it doesn't help that you lied to me
It doesn't help that I fell so quickly down
You brought me down

And it's not right tonight
No, I'm not alright tonight

Because I don't know who I am to you
Am I a face without a name
Someone to ease your past mistakes?
Take me away
Because we say so much, yet say nothing at all
You know we're saying so much, yet we say nothing at all

You tell me that I'm pretty
You like the way I sing
But don't you know these empty words never mean a thing
Because it's her you still need, and her you bleed for
And hard as I try I will never be the one you dream of
I watch you from the window
I can't reach you through the glass
Knowing all I am is just an interruption of the past
Some might call it timing
While others call it trying
When there's nothing to be tried
Because we'll never make it right
Not tonight
