If I wait for just a second more,
I know I'll forget what I came here for,
My head was so full of things to say,
But as I open my lips all my words slip away
And anyway,
I can't believe you want to turn the page,
And move your life onto another stage,
You can change the chapter you can change the book,
But the story remains the same if you'd take a look.

For the times we've had I don't want to be, a page in your diary babe,
For the good, the bad I don't want to see, a page in your diary babe,
For the happy, the sad, I don't want to be another page in your diary.

Perhaps if I held you I could win again,
I could take your hands we'd talk and maybe then,
That look in your eyes I always recognize,
Would tell me everything is gonna be fine,
You're gonna be mine
For a long time

    General CommentI can't believe more people don't remember this song. Actually the first time I heard it was on the soundtrack of the indie film "The Edge of Seventeen," and it complimented the film in a very memorable way. It's a straightforward break-up song, from the viewpoint of the party who isn't ready to let go. A simple and universal song that creeps under one's skin.
