What would I give to hold you once again?
What would I give to make this loneliness end?
If I could bring you back, back to where this love once lived?
What would I give?
Everything

What would I do for one more precious moment with you?
What would it take to make your heart hear the truth?
To ease our pain I caused, make up for the time I lost with you?
What would I do?
Anything

Are you doing all right?
Have you found a life apart from me?
As it [unverified] you happiness
I don't want to know about it

'Cause night after night, I try to fight the emptiness
In this quiet room
Life goes on without you

Where would I go if only you would ask me to?
No road is too long if it would lead me back to you?
Somehow I found a way, if you called to say that you need me there?
Where would I go?
Anywhere

Are you doing all right?
Have you found a life apart from me?
For now I must confess
That I don't want to talk about it

'Cause night after night I try to fight the emptiness
In this silent room
There's no peace without you

What would I give to hear you say, you love me again?
What would it take to make this loneliness end?
If I could bring you back, back to where this love once lived?
What would I give?
Everything

What would I do?
Anything

What would I give?
Oh, everything
