Track Lyrics

INTRO

DON'T TAKE AWAY
NO DON'T TAKE AWAY
NO DON'T TAKE AWAY

VERSE 1

THE ROOM HAS SUDDENLY GROWN COLD
AND OUTSIDE IN THE STREET IT'S RAINING
YOU PACKED YOUR BAGS AND SAID GOODBYE
YOU TOOK MY HEART WITHOUT EXPLAINING
HOW COULD YOU GO HOW COULD YOU GO

BRIDGE

WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
OOH STOP BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART

CHORUS

I WANT YOU BACK, DON'T CARE WHAT I HAVE TO DO
I WANT YOU BACK
I WANT YOU BACK, GOTTA GET IT THROUGH TO YOU
I WANT YOU BACK
IF I CAN MAKE YOU SEE
ONLY YOU CAN FILL THE NEED IN ME
IF YOU WALK AWAY
YOU'LL REGRET IT SOME DAY
PLEASE STAY

VERSE 2

THIS ROOM IS FULL OF MEMORIES AND
SHADOWS OF THE PAST REMIND ME
OF ALL THE LOVE I GAVE IN VAIN AND
OF ALL THE HURT I FEEL INSIDE ME

BRIDGE

WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
OOH STOP BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART

CHORUS

I WANT YOU BACK, DON'T CARE WHAT I HAVE TO DO
I WANT YOU BACK
I WANT YOU BACK, GOTTA GET IT THROUGH TO YOU
I WANT YOU BACK
IF I CAN MAKE YOU SEE
ONLY YOU CAN FILL THE NEED IN ME
IF YOU WALK AWAY
YOU'LL REGRET IT SOME DAY
PLEASE STAY
DON'T TAKE AWAY, NO DON'T TAKE AWAY, NO X 2
WE HAD A LOVE MOST PEOPLE NEVER KNOW
OOH STOP BEFORE YOU BREAK MY HEART

CHORUS TO FADE
