There was a time when
Broken hearts and broken dreams
Were over.
There was a place where
All you could do was
Wish on a four leaf clover.

But now is a new time
There is a new place
Where dreams just can't come true.
It started the day when I left you (oh)

Chorus:
I could never love again the way that I loved you (oh)
I could never cry again like I did when I left you
And when we said goodbye,
Oh the look in your eyes
Just left me beside myself without your heart (without your heart)
I could never love again now that we're apart

Verse 2:
When I was sorry
It was too late to turn around (turn around)
And tell you so.
There was no reason
There was no reason
Just a foolish beat of my heart.

CHORUS

Bridge:
Oh, can't you see I'm not fooling nobody
Don't you see the tears are falling down my face
Since you went away
Break my heart, you slipped away
Didn't know I was wrong
Never meant to hurt you now you're gone

OooOooOoo
Do do do do do do
OoooOooOoo
Oooooo....

I could never love again now that we're apart.
(now that we're apart) oh
I could never love again now that we're apart.

    General CommentThis has nothing to do with what the song means to me and what the song actually means:
    This came from Debbie gibson herself on an MTV interview a while back on MTV a caller called in and asked her what this song meant and what is was about.
    She said she just wrote it and there is no meaning.

    General CommentIn the song, she takes the role of the one who ended the relationship (rather than crying over being dumped):
    "It started the day when I left you
    I could never love again the way that I loved you
    I could never cry again like I did when I left you"
