Lyrics
Late at night I sit at home and think of where you are right now
I know that you’re with someone else, I almost want to cry aloud
Does he appreciate your love the way I would appreciate you?
Is there no hope someday you will be all mine?

I really don’t think things should be like this
I hope someday things won’t be this way
I know I shouldn’t try to steal your heart
But it beats the hell out of being apart
I hope someday that you’ll understand

When we met you were just another little girl to me
But then I went and slowly fell in love with you which turned to tragedy
Then you went and got engaged to him
Which put me in a rage inside
I wish there was someway I could tell you how I feel

I really don’t think things should be like this
I hope someday things won’t be this way
I know I shouldn’t try to steal your heart
But it beats the hell out of being apart
I hope someday that you’ll understand
Understand what you mean to me and what me and you could someday be
I guess it’s all in the hands of our destiny

Now I stand alone again hoping that you find me, friend
You can say I can rock but that’s not all I can do
I also have a special talent for loving you

When we met you were just another little girl to me
But then I went and slowly fell in love with you which turned to tragedy
Then you went and got engaged to him
Which put me in a rage inside
I wish there was someway I could tell you how I feel
Late at night I sit at home and think of where you are right now
I know that you’re with someone else, I almost want to cry aloud
Does he appreciate your love the way I would appreciate you?
Is there no way someday you may be all mine?

I don’t think things should be this way
I don’t think things should be this way
I don’t think things should be this way
