I can’t take it back
I can’t change the facts
I can’t make the past be something else

I can’t get too close
I can’t let you go
I can’t dream of loving someone else

One more touch one more embrace
Please don’t leave me now
There must be some saving grace
To rise about the doubt

Go the distance take my hand
Lead me like a child
One last night baby one more stand
Just one more mercy mile

I can’t be so cold
I can’t see the road
I can’t draw the blinds or shut the door

I can’t seem to say
I can’t walk away
I can’t live without you anymore

It’s too late it’s not too late
All I need is you to stay
