Without wishing to cause you any pain

And if I take the chance of seeing you again 
I just don't know what I would do  baby

Then I hear those voices in the back of my mind  
Telling me over and over and over that I blew it babe. 

You had one chance and you blew it 
You may never get another chance 
You had the floor and you knew it 
You can't blame it on your circumstance 
At the risk of causing you a little pain 
I'm going to have to forget you, babe 
'Cause you broke my heart, left it out in the rain 
And you'd the same again if I let you, babe. 

I would give anything to hold you in my arms 
But you know I can't do that, baby. 

I guess I'll have to live with the choice that I have made 
Even though deep down I still suspect that I blew it.
