Sometimes a woman and a man make plans,
And then change in the middle of the stream.
Why does the flame die, where does the blame lie?
And what becomes of their dreams?
Will I be startin’ on my own again brand new?
Or will I be rebuilding what I once had with you?
Say you don’t need me and I’ll be gone.
Say that you want me and I’ll come on home.
I can take anything but standing in the dark.
Don’t hold nothing back, please say what’s in your heart.
We always said we’d tell each other everything,
That we were feeling deep inside.
Now when I see your eyes, no matter how you try,
You’re feeling something you can’t hide.
Everyone knows one way that love’s supposed to be,
But in the real world there ain’t no guarantee.
I’ll still love you no matter what you say,
I’ll stand beside you, but I won’t stand in your way. Baby…
