He was right to ... keep us apart
So I would not fall into your eyes

But you are always leaving
Smiles and goodbyes in your eyes

I began this song ... the night we met
Knowing lovers we would be

But I did not finish it ... until you'd gone
Now I sing for you alone

I just want to tell you ... I was wrong
To run away looking for ... better love

But discontent is a hard habit to break

He just could not .. keep us apart
A moment's inspiration ... turned into a memory
