A Man With A Broken Voice,
Yet He Always Had The Choice To Speak His Mind,
If Only He Could Find The Time.
And She Was Just a Lonely Girl,
And Her Only Claim To Fame
Was To Fix His World
But She Could Only Walk Behind
As Shadows Cast Her Face
Of Ghosts That Haunted His Life
And She Could Only Be Denied,
And Stand by his Side and Cry
But I Won't,
No I Won't Be The One
To Walk Away.
Why Don't You Stay A While?
Please Stay A While
How Could I Let Him Down?
But He Was a Mystery,
He Got Lost In The Lust Of Wanting More
And Though She Found this Such a Bore,
She Still Stood Strong.
Not Confused By All The Things That He Did So Wrong.
And Still She Only Walked Behind,
As these Shadows Cast Her Face Of Ghosts That Haunted His Life.
She Could Only Be Denied And Stand By His Side
