lyrics

Whatever happened to our sweet song? Where did the love go, how did things go so wrong?
Bitter sweet memories of a love that’s grown cold, I’ll be hurting this Christmas without you to hold.

But somehow I swallow my pain. You use words like weapons to wound me again.
But now I'm calling out, falling apart.

I'm this close to crying, but still I keep trying to be the man with no heart.

Whatever happened to a bond so strong? Like a winter rose when the summer has gone.
I still keep those memories of you and our past. And I curse the fortune teller who said we would last.

But now I shiver inside. You know how to hurt me and pierce my pride.
But now I'm calling out, falling apart.

I'm this close to crying, but still I keep trying to be the man with no heart.

You know what, I'm thinking of going out drinking and washing my blues away.
I kid myself baby, that someday maybe you will come back and stay.

It’s a long and winding road and I'm out in the snow. Nobody loves me and I've nowhere to go.
I play the past in my head, think of things that I should have said. But now it’s too late and you're gone.

But hold on, my tears inside, you know how to hurt me and paralyse my pride.
But now I'm calling out, falling apart.

As you look back over your frozen shoulder, you’ll just see the man with no heart.
