Lyrics

Verse 1
When you look into my eyes, do you really see me?
Or am I just a figment of your fantasy?
You?ve played around for so long,
Asking me to be strong ?til the end.
If you could learn to be strong,
Then I might try this love again, oh, oh.
Try this love again, oh, oh.

Verse 2
What?s the matter with you boy, can?t you make up your mind?
Should I stay? Should I go? I don?t know, I just need a sign.
I?ve got my suitcases packed.
This is not make-believe, it?s the end.
If you won?t respect me,
Then I won?t try this love again, oh, oh.
Try this love again, mmm-mmm.

Interlude

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know.

Verse 3
It?s too late, it?s too soon.
It?s never right, tell me what can we do
To get the magic back between me and you?
Can?t let the memories go, what you did I just can?t comprehend.
But if you could be sorry,
Maybe I could try this love again.

When you look into my eyes, do you really see me?
Or am I just a figment of your fantasy?
