Can I believe my ears? Is this really you? Pacing the floor with one eye on the door Watching the winners go through Why do you hang back now? Why d'you hesitate? You fires don't burn For he who waits
Out of all of the people That I ever knew If one should have made it It should have been you!
I know who I'm looking for But I don't believe my eyes The sight of you with your head hung low Is a sick, sad surprise Why do you hang back now? Why d'you hesitate? How dare you throw it all away then tell me Aw man it must be fate
Out of all of the people That I ever knew There had to one I could believe in And it should have been you!
A gift that dies is a tragic thing And it happens all the time But a gift that's wasted, thrown to hell is the Worst of stupid crimes! I saw you hang back now! I watched you hesitate! You're a well respected man, but bullshit! You could've been great!
Out of all the people I ever knew There should have been one And it should have been you!
I spent my whole life Looking for someone like you!
