(Verse)
You turn around, it is enough
It's just an image of yourself
To save the song you can be tough
You're just a picture on my shelf

An empty frame that's left behind
Cause you took everything away
I played the game, o.k. I'm fine
I'm just the loser of the day

(Chorus)
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
(Before you leave, before you leave)

(Verse)
There's no way out, it's way too loud
It's like poison in the air
If you come back to me, you come back to me
I don't really care
If you come back to me, you come back to me
I don't really care

(Chorus)
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
(Before you leave, before you leave)

(Bridge)
My part in this game is that I will never be the same
My heart just called your name
My part in this game is that I will never be the same
And my heart just called your name

(Chorus)
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
A minute before you leave
Before you close that door
Think it over, I think it's over
(Before you leave, before you leave)
