lyrics

I’ve given up fighting what I know to be true
I’ve lost my taste for anyone who’s not you
But you’re so far from me and it makes me so blue

I know it’s not healthy I know it’s no good
I think about you dear far more than I should
But I wouldn’t stop it if even I could

And I’ve tried so hard just to be satisfied
But I can’t help but want you right here by my side
Got a heart that keeps hoping but my eyes open wide
Don’t ask me the number of tears that I’ve cried

You may truly love me but it’s still kind of rough
’Cause what it comes down to when push comes to shove
Is that love can be lovely but it’s rarely enough

Oh but I’ve tried so hard just to be satisfied
And I can’t help but want you right here by my side
Got a heart that keeps hoping and my eyes open wide
You’d be worth any number of tears that I’ve cried
