It's quiet now and what it brings is everything Comes calling back a brilliant night I'm still awake I looked ahead I'm sure I saw you there You don't need me to tell you now That nothing can compare [Chorus] You might've laughed if I told you You might have hidden your frown You might've succeeded in changing me I might've been turned around It's easier to leave than to be left behind Leaving was never my proud Leaving New York never easy I saw the light fading out Now life is sweet and what it brings I tried to take The loneliness it wears me out It lies in wait And on a loss still in my eyes Shatter a necklace across your thigh I might've lived my life in a dream But I swear this is real Memory fuses, and shatters like glass Mercurial future forget the past But it's you, it's what I feel [Chorus] You find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart You find it in your heart, (change) I told you forever I love you it's forever I told you if I love you, I love you forever I told you forever I love you it's forever I told you if I love you, I love you forever You never, you never, you told me it's forever! [Chorus:]
