I hope that there are still people who will hear this song and not understand how it felt to write it. But deep down, I’m afraid that everyone does. - David


It’s been a long week and now I’m drinking
That’s just to say that nothing has changed
I met somebody, tried hard to love him
but I guess it turned out the same

One too many nights
spent sleeping with someone I don’t know
I keep sayin’ it’s all right
Gotta be better than bein’ alone

After so many lovers, why am I so far from love?
How many hearts will be broken before I finally fall in love?

Another late night, candles burning
Another love tossed into the flames
I’m gonna sit and watch the fire dyin’
and pray to God I don’t end up that way

One too many nights
spent fumbling someone’s heart to the floor
Tell me it’ll be all right
‘Cause I probably can’t take too much more

It doesn’t matter how much you love me
I still can’t learn how not to leave
