Lyrics:

Here I am
Alone and I don’t understand
Exactly how it all began
The dream just walked away

I’m holding on
When all but the passion’s gone
And from the start
Maybe I was trying too hard
It’s crazy ’cause it’s breaking my heart
Things can fall apart but I know
That I don’t want you to go

Heroes die
When they ignore the cause inside
But they learned from what’s left behind
And fight for something else
And so it goes
That we have both learned how to grow

And from the start
Maybe we were trying too hard
It’s crazy ’cause it’s breaking our hearts
Things can fall apart, but I know
That I don’t want you to go

Oh it’s just too much
Taking on the whole world all by myself
There’s not enough
Unless I start trusting somebody else
Somebody else and love again

And from the start
Maybe we were trying too hard
It’s crazy ’cause it’s breaking our hearts
Things can fall apart, but I know
That I don’t want you to go

Maybe we were trying too hard
It’s crazy ’cause it’s breaking our hearts
Things can fall apart, but I know
That I don’t want you to go

Oh no, I don’t want you to go
Say that you won’t go
