Helena, don't walk away
Before you give me back my heart
If it were mine it would be yours to take
I'm sorry I let down my guard, oh Helena

You looked so sweet
I should have seen
While I was playing for fun
You were playing for keeps

You win I lose
Is there some way
You can leave me
In your debts oh my girl

And I can live to die another day
On that day I won't forget you Helena

You look so sweet
Waiting for me
While I wait for her
To give me any reason to leave

Don't waste your pretty sympathy
She's gonna be just fine
Helena so will we
So will everything in time

Helena don't walk away
Did you hear one word I said oh well
I never really liked her anyway
And I forgot her: I'll forget you Helena

You're not that sweet
And neither is she
Go ahead and tell her anything

You are good Helena
Guys like me never sleep alone at night
I don't need your sympathy
Cause I'll always be
Just fine
Yeah I'll always be
Just fine

Yeah I'll always be
Just fine
