lyrics

(lyrics)

You watch the telephone so patiently
And I leave you quite alone, that's kind of me
I'm having trouble lately remembering my name
Wish I could forget the rules of this sad game

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss

A life made of memories and photographs
Those were the days and we could always laugh
I'm having trouble lately knowing who I am
Wish I could remember if I gave a damn

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss
I would like to know
But I will never know how
How it ever came to this
And is this happiness

Follow a dream into the deep sunset
These are the days that we must not forget
I'm having trouble lately knowing what to say
How can you turn back when we've come all this way

I would like to know
I would like to know how
How it ever came to this
How ever did we miss
I would like to know
But I will never know how
How it ever came to this
It ever came to this
We never wanted this
We never wanted-

Never wanted this
Never wanted this
Never wanted this
Never wanted this
