oh dear why won't you try?
new year's when you said goodbye
& down here there's a crowd they're young &
they're proud tonight
& one tear for each mistake, you're wrong & you
can't make it right

[ch]
& i can't understand
& now you can't defend
how you could end your life
& i am left behind

oh dear what does it take?
right here there's an endless ache
& small hurts that i made but i am afraid to break
what words? they're only part. the sound that my
heart still makes

[ch]

[instr. bridge]

[repeat last verse]
