lyrics

YOU WERE DARKER THAN THE SHADOWS
IN THE CORNERS OF MY EYES
SO BEAUTIFUL AND DISTANT
LIKE A STAR UP IN THE SKY

YOU NEVER PROMISED ANYTHING
I NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD
AND ALL THE LOVE I THOUGHT YOU GAVE
YOU TURNED AROUND AND TOOK

BUT I REALIZED I’D COME TOO FAR
TOO FAR TO TURN BACK NOW

I NEVER SAW MY FUTURE
IN THE MIRROR OF YOUR EYES
BUT I BEGGED YOU LIKE THE MORNING SKY
BEGS THE SUN TO RISE

AND WHENEVER WE WENT DANCING
IN SOME DUSTY COWBOY BAR
YOU WERE LIKE THE MARIONETTE
ON THE DASHBOARD OF MY CAR

AND I HOPED TO GOD WE’D COME TOO FAR
TOO FAR TO TURN BACK NOW

WHAT WILL TOMORROW BE
WITHOUT YOUR ARMS TO ANCHOR ME
TUMBLE WEEDS JUST BLOW AWAY
THE SAND CAN’T HOLD THEM MORE THAN A DAY

I CAN SEE YOUR TICKET ON THE TABLE
AND YOU’RE FULL OF SWEET REGRET
I CAN SEE THE TEARS INSIDE YOUR EYES
AND MINE ARE RED I BET

I NEVER KNEW MY HEART WOULD BREAK
I NEVER SAW THE SIGNS
BUT THAT PHONE WAS ALWAYS RINGING
AND THERE WAS NO ONE ON THE LINE

AND I REALIZED YOU’D GONE TOO FAR
TOO FAR TO TURN BACK NOW
