Lyrics

It doesn't matter what you create
In time, it all gets erased
So, forget it
Yeah, forget it

Don't try to tell me I'm wrong
Soon you'll be changing your song
And forget it

Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, you've come and gone your way
Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, you couldn't come to stay

I've tried so many things
My failure still stings
It's a heartache
It's a heartache
Still I can never give up
I got to drink from the cup
One more time
One more time

Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, couldn't come to stay
Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, you couldn't come to stay

Blonde hair and blue eyes
Make you look like a queen
I've seen your face so many times
On the cover of a magazine

Heavy metal bracelet
Dangling from your wrist
You are still the prettiest girl
That I never kissed

May I see you dance again
Like you used to do
When I was your number one
And number one was two

I can smell your makeup
When you stand so close
Tell me how am I suppose
To let your lovin' go?
Let 'cha go

Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, you've come and gone your way
Love, you've fallen through
Love, you've gone away
Love, you ??? your way
