Well baby there you stand...
With your little head down in your hand
Oh my God I can't believe it's happening again
Your baby's gone and you're all alone and it looks like the end...
You're back out on the street
And you're tryin' to remember, oh...
How to start it over?
You don't know if you can
You don't care much for a stranger's touch but you can't hold your man
Never thought you'd be alone this far down the line
But I know what's been on your mind
You're afraid it's all been wasted time
The autumn leaves have got you thinking
About the first time that you fell fell
You didn't love the boy too much
No-no you just loved the boy too well well well well
So you live from day to day
And you dream about tomorrow
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something to make them go away...
And I could have done so many things baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin' what I left behind
And from worrying 'bout this wasted time
(ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) Another love has come and gone
(ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) The years keep rushing on
I remember (a-a-a-h...) what you told me
Before you went out on your own
Sometimes to (a-a-a-h...) keep it together
You got to leave it alone...
So you can get on with your search baby
And I can get on with mine
And maybe someday we will find
That it wasn't really wasted time
Oh... hoo... hoo-hoo...
M-m-m-m... m-m-m-m... h-m-m-m m-m-m-m
