You cried a long lost child

And I tried on I tried to hold you

But you were young

And you were wild

[CHORUS]

But I, I will never be the same

Oh I, I will never be the same

Caught in your eyes

Lost in your name

I will never be the same



Secrets of your life

But you guarded them like a lie

Placed up on the highest shelf

In the morning of the night

When I woke to find you gone

I knew your distant devil

Must be draggin' you along

And you swore that you were bound for glory

And for wanting you had no shame

But I loved you

And then I lost you

And I will never be the same
