Music & Lyrics by Denise Dimin/Reel2Real Songs

The thought of watchin' you cry,
Makes it hard for me to think of a way, to say, goodbye.
We've tried to think of alternatives
But we've not nothin' more to lose, what's the use, we're wastin' time.

And though I'll never really be sure,
Maybe a week from now, a year
I'll change my mind, I'll look behind

I can't think of anymore stories to tell,
And it seems that I've heard all yours, and a forced smile won't do.
We both know our end will be here soon,
So we guiltily search our minds, for why, and can't find a clue.

Hanging on apologies and excuses,
We've discovered that words
Are just a shield for how we really feel.

Never looking each other in the eye,
Watching our feet as we walk, there's no talk, just alibis.
A red light that will never turn green,
Subtle hints leading to the final blow, time to go, goodbye.

And though I'll never really be sure,
Maybe a week from now, a year
I'll change my mind, I'll look behind
I'll change my mind, I'll look behind.
