Here I go again I promised myself I wouldn't think of you today
You've moved on
It's just that everywhere I go all the buildings know your name
Steel and granite reminders

The lights go out the same
You call another name
To your lover now
The lover after me
Am I all alone in the universe?
I have given mine away to a world that didn't want it anyway
It's funny I don't remember being chained
Without you I'm always twenty minutes late
Ever since you've been gone
The only difference is
To your love
To your love

The nights are cold and lonely
But I'm still holding on for you
Here I go again, I promised myself I wouldn't think of you today
I'm calling out your name because I can't move on
Ever since you've been gone
The only difference is
To your love
To your love
