We said goodbye. Tried her hand at magic. But we couldn't make us disappear. Not a day goes by I don't wish I had you. So in a way, I'm glad you're still here. It's a bitter sweet victory. Lovin' the ghost in front of me. [Chorus] Now I can't laugh, can't cry. And I can't run, can't hide. What do I gotta do? What do I gotta do to keep you? What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me? I wrote a couple of notes. One in love, one in anger. They're lying there dying in the dresser drawer. Lived louder than my voice. Struggled through a stranger. He loved me until I loved you even more. It's a bitter sweet victory. Knowing someone else wanted me. [Chorus] You get used to the pain, and numb to the sting Till you can't feel anything. You tried to explain, but I couldn't hear it. As if your words were my tears. Flowing freely, warm and quiet. From the edges of my eyes and my ears. Then all that disappears. [Chorus: x2] What do I gotta do? What do I gotta do to keep you? What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me?
