my lyricsbox
Games, changes and fears
When will they go from here
When will they stop
I believe that faith
Has brought us here
And we should be together, babe
But we're not

I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiendin'

[chorus]
I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
I may seem alright and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front, just a front

I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiendin'

[chorus]
I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
Boy, I need your touch
Your love, kisses and such
With all my might, I try
But this I can't deny, deny

I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiendin'

[chorus]
I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

[Music till End]
