but you wouldnít know what itís like
to have this lust bottled
while you sit and hide away
in another world
in another life
and we are always separated
because i canít read your thoughts like
i used to
dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
that we could build a foundation
stronger then what we shared
itís not getting us anywhere
never got us
what we always admired
what we always imagined we could be
wrapped within these nights
like we knew
like we knew all along
when we had no clue
to keep us wondering
to keep our faith alive,
our love wilting
into the summer heat
into the summer memories
when you swept me off my feet
just like that
just like that
oh, and i believed you when you said
hang on just a little longer
youíre stronger then this
youíre stronger

but iím so weak in the knees
for you
has never kept me alive
and the lies
they only serve to make me want to
break the ties
away from your grip
away from those eyes
that always seemed to rip apart my
did you know how i used to cry?
did you know that i never stopped wondering why?
