People passing by
They don't mean a thing
It's just your face
I'm looking for
Never see your hair
Blowing through the crowd
It's been like this
Since you walked out the door
Everywhere I search
There's nothing there to see
Nothing but an empty space
Which throws itself at me
But still I never cease
To try and find you girl
'Cause my heart is broken now
And you have got the key
chorus:
If you could see me now
You'd come running back to me
I'm just a little shell of the man
Of the man I used to be
Now and then I wonder why
I try and bring you back home
But though you went away
I'd be a fool to spend my life alone
So I'm begging girl
Put past things in the past
That's all over now
We'll build a love to last
(repeat chorus)
If you don't come back
I don't know what I'll do
And if you come back to me
There's nothing I won't do for you
I'm just an unhappy man
So try and do what you can
I'll never make you blue
I'll never be untrue again
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
