    Lyrics »

Take a look at this empty shell
Half a man of what used to be
I survived and I'm doing well
But I think of you constantly
We were lovers for oh so long
Growing when others could not
We were lovers and we were strong
But somehow hurt was all that we got
Take a look at this falling tear
As the thought of you comes to mind
It remembers so very clear
Just how hard our love was to find
We were lovers who played it fair
Promising never to hide
We were lovers who really cared
And now we're just strangers inside

Chorus:
Look away
But tell me what's my poor heart supposed to do
Look away
But show me how to really let go of you
Look away

But hold me once and if there's still nothing there
Then I'll gather up all these years of hope
And let them vanish in the air
Take a look at these photographs
It's a fool who would disagree
We had something that few can grasp
And it's there in our eyes to see
We were lovers right to the end
And if you were here tonight
We'd be lovers all over again
But that wouldn't make it all right

(Chorus)
