Sometimes alone at night I lie and wonder
Was breaking up the only thing to do
We live our separate lives like perfect strangers
But in the end, we're really perfect fools
Maybe in time we'll shake the memories
Maybe in time forget the pain
But baby tonight, this heart remembers
It doesn't have to be this way
We don't need to live the lie anymore
I want you back, I'm holding on
It doesn't have to be this way
Here we stand, love's an open door
It doesn't have to be this way
With breakin' up there comes this empty feelin'
The child within you, lost without a prayer
So you run a little wild searching for some meaning
Deep into the streets of your despair
What does it take to shake your memory
What in the world could ease the pain
How can I make your heart surrender
It doesn't have to be this way
We don't need to live the lie anymore
I want you back, I'm holding on
It doesn't have to be this way
Here we stand, love's an open door
It doesn't have to be this way
Maybe in time we'll shake the memories
Maybe in time forget the pain
But baby tonight, this heart remembers all the same
It doesn't have to be this way
We don't need to live the lie anymore
I want you back, I'm holding on
It doesn't have to be this way
Here we stand, love's an open door
It doesn't have to be this way
It doesn't have to be this way
We don't need to live the lie anymore
I want you back, I'm holding on
It doesn't have to be this way
Here we stand, love's an open door
It doesn't have to be this way
It doesn't have to be this way
We don't need to live the lie anymore
I want you back, I'm holding on
It doesn't have to be this way
