Take my hand, don’t let it go
In your eyes, all I need to know
I just don’t understand what made you change your mind

I hold you close, feel you pull away
Under a spell, too hard to break
I wish I had the strength to say goodbye this time

And I know that I’ve been here before
Always left wanting more

Loving you, is anything but easy
Loving you..ooh ooh
Loving you, is anything but easy
And I know, I know that it’s so hard - to let go
