Lyrics
Time has passed since you are gone
I still love you, don’t know what else I can say
You took my heart and ran away somewhere, I don’t know why
You can’t find it now, those feelings that you used to have
I’ve given you every possible thing that I can
That’s not enough, please tell me what do I have to do?

To get you back in my arms again, back where you belong
It’s just a fact that this love won’t die, the fire is just too strong
Please tell me, what do I have to do?
I just can’t get over you
I’ve tried and tried but it’s no use, you’re gone

Deep inside I know that you were wrong
I tried to think that I can live without you with me
But then I see your pretty face and I just die inside
There is just no way I can live without you
I’ve given you every possible thing that I can
That’s not enough, please tell me what do I have to do?

To get me back in my home again, back where I belong
To do those acts that we used to do when love was very strong
Please tell me, what do I have to do?
To try and convince you that the love we had was just so true

So much time has passed since you are gone
I still love you, don’t know what else I can say
But I will never give up on your love
It just won’t stop, the way that I feel for you

I need you back in my arms again, back where you belong
It’s just a fact that this love won’t die, this fire is much too strong
Please tell me, what do I have to do?
I just can’t get over you
I’ve tried and tried but it’s no use, you’re gone

Analysis: A weird and moody, yet somewhat tacky love song, written and recorded spontaneously in 1994. The song contains an out-of-context intro before morphing into the main theme.
