There was frost when I woke up this morning

It was dark though the day was dawning

And when I reached for you across our bed

I grasped the empty air

I wanted to cry cuz I needed you to keep me warm

And again you weren't there

You're so busy with your job, or so you tell me

I'm not really sure what to believe

Cuz my friends have been nearing rumours

About the "guests" you receive

How many kids you got baby?

How long have you been fooling around?

How long since you buried my face

Six feet underground?

Am I dead to you?

Am I still real?

Would you please tell me

How you feel?

I've done the best that I can do

I've tried so hard to love you

Every single heartache, every breath I take

My heart, my soul, my life

Is yours

But it's not enough, no

Not for you

I can't give you any more

Cuz I've given you all I got

I'm not what you want me to be

But I can't be something I'm not

And I've waited for you so long

But I don't know how I can hold on

My dedication has lost its footing

My loyalty's been abused

You've let me down again and again

My heart has been bruised

I got no reason I should stay

I can feel this love

Slipping away

You only make me cry I know

But every time I try to go

I can't erase

The image of your face

Streaked with tears

Even though I know you'd never cry

Not over me

I'm sitting at the piano playing a sad song

It's the same melody I've been playing for so long

It's getting late now and you're still not home

The stars are awake in the moonlight

And I wonder if you love that woman you're with

Wherever you're sleeping tonight

You don't have the time for roses or romantic things

I don't even remember your kiss

You think expensive gifts account for your absence

At least you know I exist

When you finally come home

I ask if you'll love me tonight

You just smile and say:

"Sorry baby, I'm too tired."

And I know why

Cuz I can smell her perfume

And suddenly this bed I lie in

Feels cold, like a tomb

I get up

And walk to the window

You only make me cry

I know

And as I'm standing there

Wanting to be dead

You say: "Come on baby,

Come back to bed."

Then your arms are around me

And you're saying: "Baby, what's wrong?"

It's then that I know

Why I hold on

Damn you baby

I know you can love me like a man

So why don't you baby

Is it me?

I don't understand

I've done the best that I can do

I've tried so hard to love you

Every single heartache, every breath I take

My heart, my soul, my life

Is yours

But it's not enough, no

Not for you

I can't give you any more

Cuz I've given you all I got

I'm not what you want me to be

But I can't be something I'm not

And I've waited for you so long

But I don't know how I can hold on

My dedication has lost its footing

My loyalty's been abused

You've let me down again and again

My heart has been bruised

I got no reason I should stay

I can feel this love

Slipping away

You only make me cry I know

But every time I try to go

I can't erase

The image of your face

Streaked with tears

Even though I know you'd never cry

Not over me
