lyrics

WELL MY BAGS ARE ALL PACKED
AND I'M LEAVING ON THE NEXT TRAIN TO ANYWHERE.
WOULD HAVE STAYED WITH YOU FOREVER,
IF I THOUGHT FOR ONE MOMENT YOU REALLY CARED

BUT I'VE BEEN FOOLING MYSELF LIKE I ALWAYS DO.
YOU NEVER NEEDED ME THE WAY I NEEDED YOU.
WISHING AND HOPING WON'T MAKE ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE,
YOU LEFT THIS POOR HEART OF MINE
BATTERED AND BLUE, BATTERED AND BLUE

WHEN YOU TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME
DON'T YOU KNOW I KNOW TO YOU IT'S JUST A GAME?
BUT I SEE THE TRUTH BEHIND YOUR EYES
AND WHAT I SEE CAN ONLY CAUSE ME PAIN

AND I'VE BEEN FOOLING MYSELF LIKE I ALWAYS DO,
YOU NEVER LOVE ME THE WAY THAT I WANT YOU TO.
WISHING AND HOPING WON'T MAKE ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE,
YOU LEFT THIS POOR HEART OF MINE
BATTERED AND BLUE

YOU LIE BESIDE ME BUT I KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT REALLY HERE
A LOVE NEGLECTED, WELL IT WITHERS IN THE PASSING YEARS
AND I STILL LOVE YOU BUT I WILL NOT SHED ANOTHER TEAR
SOMEDAY I HOPE I FIND A LOVE LIKE MINE

WELL MY BAGS ARE ALL PACKED
AND I'M LEAVING ON A TRAIN TO ANYWHERE.
WOULD HAVE STAYED WITH YOU FOREVER
BUT NOW I UNDERSTAND YOU JUST DON'T CARE

AND I'M DONE FOOLING MYSELF LIKE I ALWAYS DO
YOU'LL NEVER LOVE ME THE WAY I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU
WISHING AND HOPING WON'T MAKE ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE,
YOU LEFT THIS POOR HEART OF MINE......
