Lyrics

In the morning you thought I was sleeping

But I watched you go

A yellow cab waiting for you

Outside in the snow

 

If I were stronger or braver or better

Or the man that you need

I'd have stood in that doorway and held you

And not let you leave

 

And I can't count the ways

That this whole thing has turned into hell

I knew one of these days

You would figure it out for yourself

 

You wanted an old love

To feel like it was all brand new

And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in

And give it to you

 

I bought flowers and wine

But I'd finally broken your heart

I guess it was just a matter of time

Until we drifted a part

 

You were lovely and lonely and longing

For much better days

And you knew that you never would find them

Without walking away

 

Year after year we just waited

For dreams to come true

Choking back tears breath bated

What more could we do

 

You wanted a love you remembered

And the man you once knew

And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in

And give it to you

 

How the winter creeps in

Through these old windowpanes

With every creak in this cold lonely house

I think maybe I'll see you again

 

And a love is a love is a love

Until it is not

You give what you give what you're left with

Is what you have got

 

You get what you get

And you hope that it gets you through

And in the morning the lonely crept in

Like winter will do

 

And I wish you the best

I wish you a life filled with ease

I wish you'd never left

I wish you'd come back home to me

 

And I hope you are happy

I hope you've found love that is true

And I'm sorry I couldn't just give in

And give it to you

 

I'm so sorry I couldn't just give in

And give it to you
