Beverley Craven — It Doesn't Have To End This Way lyrics

I waited around for your love too long,
When I knew deep in my heart we were wrong.
I guess I fooled myself,
Loving you was enough to see us through.
All my hopes and fears,
Faded with my tears.
And I'm already missing you.
It doesn't have to end this way
(... Doesn't have to end this way)
But you don't hear a word I say.
After all this time,
So far down the line,
Will you change your mind and stay?

I search for the words,
You can't find
Through the glass windows of your heart
Past the lies.
Is it someone else?
Was I blind?
Do you know the times I've tried?
Tell me what to do.
Am I losing you?
You'll always be a part of my life.

It doesn't have to end this way
(... Doesn't have to end this way)
But you don't hear a word I say.
(... So far down the line)
After all this time,
So far down the line,
Will you change your mind and stay? ... Stay)

It doesn't have to end this way
(... Doesn't have to end this way)
And you don't need the thing you say.
I can understand your pain,
Cause I feel the same,
Everytime you go away.

I guess I fooled myself
Loving you was enough to see us through.
All my hopes and fears.
Faded with my tears,
And I'm already missing you

It doesn't have to end this way
(... Doesn't have to end this way)
But you don't hear a word I say
(... So far down the line)
After all this time,
So far down the line,
Will you change your mind and stay? ... Stay)

It doesn't have to end this way
(... Doesn't have to end this way)
And you don't need (... You don't need) the thing you say
I can understand your pain,
Cause I feel the same,
Everytime you go away.
