Lyrics

by Charles Hiestand



He's luke warm,
she's as cold as ice
Did we make a mistake
when we ignored that advise?

Now many winters on
at last I am through
Standing on the other side
I can really see you

But I can't want you
I can't need you
I can't love you
It is not allowed
They say it's not allowed

My dreams were compromised
by reality
No one in the world could be
the girl I imagined
So for years I thought
this is as good as it gets
Then there you are again
my dream in the flesh

But I can't want you
I can't need you
I can't love you
It is not allowed
I hear it's not allowed

Grief is bitter
hope is worse
My heart is unprotected
a self-inflicted curse

So I'll just smile and lie
pretend and say that it's OK
You go and do what's right
but my feelings stay

And so I want
and I need
and I love
and I know
and I'll be here
until it is allowed
