I try to sleep to kill the pain
When I wake it's still the same
'Cause I'm living in 
This world you left behind

Just like a broken piece of glass
You have swept me aside to pass
Leaving shattered dreams
With a lonely heart and mind

Well here I go again 
(Here I go again)
It's just like yesterday
(Just like yesterday
The pain is deep within 
My heart to stay

I'm just a fool to sit and cry
Wasting years before I do
In this lonely world
This world you left behind

Well here I go again
(Here I go again)
It's just like yesterday
(Just like yesterday)
The pain is deep within 
My heart to stay-ay

I'm just a fool to sit and cry
Wasting years before I die
In this lonely world
This world you left behind
