oh, you look so lonely standing there
with your bright cotton candy hair
and that look upon your face
that says you long for my embrace

so don't try to tell me it's goodbye
'cause i know they taught you not to lie

oh, don't leave me, don't leave
these arms that love you
i promise you it's warm,
you'll be sheltered from each storm

you said it's what i haven't seen
that holds what we might've been
but i know you want to cry
when that twinkle's in your eye

so don't try to tell me it's farewell
'cause you know i read you far too well

oh, don't leave me,
don't leave me all alone,
in this house of broken dreams
i can't sleep when you are gone

don't ever tell me it's goodbye,
'cause i know, i know they taught you not to lie
