40 Reasons

40 Reasons why I often wonder
About the girl who led me on
Thru the thunder and the rain.

Why don't you ever hold me?
I don't believe you, don't believe you told me.

Forty reasons
Why I am singing
My head is turning and
My heart is stinging

And you got me on a string
That kind of love can be a lonely thing.
And it's growing old that gives people the blues
And it's growing up that gets me confused.


I've been working and I sit for a while
And my mind wanders to your distant smile
I bend down to tie my shoe
Lord knows right then that I am thinking of you

And I am listening to my favorite band.
And I was wishing I was holding your hand.


I keep hoping that one day you'll see
And you'll go looking for a man like me, cause
I am like a song without notes
Without you - without you.

I am like a little boy without hope,
Without you, without you.

I am like the moon without the sun,
Dark and lonely, cause you're the only one.

Dark and lonely without you.
