This song will be just another cry out.
A pitiful plea for you to come back to me.
The words are pretty much all the same as in the other songs,
they´re all about- and for you.

I´m down on my knees,
But just to try out.
You should hear my call,
though it´s just a whisper.

You don´t seem to mind.
You seem just fine.

I will not be bitter.
But there a things for you to reconsider
It takes one to know one.
My muse.
May I be damned for dreaming.
I´ll stumble through and never meet anyone like you.

Thing song is a beast,
a devious agenda
to make you regret and
come crawling back to me.

And there are secrets I could reveal,
some things that I could say
that might just ruin your whole day.

Instead I bow down and pray
for a non-believer
that´s a pretty good sign of desperation.

Why should you be sad?
Now you´re so far ahead.

Birds no longer twitter
The air tastes bitter, stars have lost their glitter.
So I´ll rather have no one.
It´s true.
May I be damned for dreaming.
I´ll stumble through and never meet anyone like you.

And I am still here captivated.
Oh, my dear how hope is overrated.
