I used to think I talk too much to keep you company
I didn't think I've done enough to have your sympathy

But now I find we didn't have the time to laugh the night away
Perhaps I'm blind
I’ll leave it all behind to start again and see the light of day

I used to have so many doubts, I could've gone astray
There ain't enough good words in the world to make it all OK

But now you say we never had the time to sing the song of love
And so tonight I'm leaving you behind
To start again and find my own resolve
