And you said, “I think I know, how you're feeling“
And I replied, “I don't think so at all“
And then we wouldn't be here
A reuniting cup of coffee, trying to recall

I know God, what have we done to each other?
And tell me dear, where did we go wrong?
And did we grow apart or did we just not grow together?
Living our dreams

When you're sleeping on the couch
When love becomes sacrificing
Then I'm not sure it's gonna be
You and me, anymore

And it's time tell me, what you are thinking and guide me
Where do we go from here?
Do our ways converge or do they separate to nowhere?
Destination unknown

When you're sleeping on the couch
When love becomes sacrificing
Then I'm not sure it's gonna be
You and me, anymore

When you're sleeping on the couch
When love becomes sacrificing
Then I'm not sure it's gonna be
You and me, anymore
