Dead on my feet -- got a deadline to meet,
But it can wait -- can't concentrate --
This one-track mind won't leave you behind
Why punish me with memories
If only now I could turn back the pages --
I played some games that I've lived to regret,
I only wish I had gone through those stages --
Years before we met --
But I know

*This time --
I'm ready for the real thing,
Last time --
I couldn't be true,
This time --
I'm ready for the real thing too*

Turn on the light, I've been tossing all night,
I try to read but it's love that I need --
In my mind -- the sound of goodbye,
Keeps hauntin' me like a distant dream --
If only now I could turn back the pages --
I played some games that I've lived to regret,
I only with I had gone through those changes
Years before we met --
And baby

(* repeat)

This time --
I'm ready for the real thing,
Last time --
I couldn't be true,
This time --
Get ready for the real thing,
Cause this time baby --
I'm ready for you
