Baby, how could I have been so vain
To make you think that you're the only one to blame.
For all these distances and all of this pain
Baby, how could I have been so blind
To presuppose that your needs were just like mine
You've been a prisoner for a long, long time.
But now you run from me
And I will set you freeIf that's the way it must be.
I tried so hard to make you part of me
That every time I looked at youI thought I'd see
Someone that you could never ever be.
So full of pride that I could not see straight
I thought you'd changeIf I could only wait
I see the truth now but it's much too late
Cause now you run from me
And I will set you freeIf that's the way it must be.
Oh--oh--baby how'd it ever get so cold and mean
Oh--oh.
Is there nothing left but silence in between.
Oh--oh--baby how'd it ever get so cold and mean
Oh--oh.
Is there nothing left but silence in between.
Baby how'd we hold on so long
To something both of us must have known was wrong
We're either fools or must be terrible strong.
Cause now you run from me.
And I will set you freeIf that's the way it must be.
Oh--oh--baby how'd it ever get so cold and mean
Oh--oh.
Is there nothing left but silence in between.
