Lyrics
So now that you’ve been told, the secrets they are no more
Oh and now that you’ve been warned, will you still be my friend?
Maybe yes, maybe no, I’m not quite sure but I do know that…

Things, they may never be the same as they were before again
Things, they may never be the same as they were before again

Oh, and how I really tried not to fall in love with you
I knew it was a dangerous game right from the start
But oh, there are some things in this life you just can’t control
No matter what you do
If you don’t like your thoughts, you can change your mind
But it is truly impossible to change what’s in your heart

And they may never be the same as it was before again
No, it may never be the same as it was before the game

I don’t want to see you cry, it breaks my heart to ever see you cry
I don’t want to leave you now but I’ve got to work things out somehow
What can I do? I’m so in love with you

And things, they may never be the same as they were before again
Things, they may never be the same as they were before again

I don’t want to see you cry, it breaks my heart to ever see you cry
I don’t want to leave you now but I’ve got to work things out somehow
What can I do? I’m so in love with you

Life has a way of crawling up from behind
And smacking you in the head when you least expect it
Love has its chains, there is good and bad in everything
There is joy along with pain
And I’m only human, me getting close to you
And you getting close to me has its toll
So please try and understand me, I can’t help that I feel like I feel
If you could see yourself through my eyes
Then maybe you could finally realize…

That I don’t want nothing to change, because I love things just the same
Ah, I don’t want nothing to change, because I love things just the same

You’ve been such a sight for sore eyes
You’ve been the one who has told me no lies
I live in a cold and lonely world, you bring me the warmth that I need
So don’t turn away, I need you too bad girl

Analysis: This song is so long it nearly plays out in real time. It was written as a sort of stream-of-consciousness with repetitive parts beaten to death until they finally break. The vocals are a bit sub-par for the intended mellow-dramatic effect.
