Late last night I was lying in the dark,
I thought I heard the back door slam.
I thought I must be dreamin',
So I went on back to sleepin',
But that was when the dreams began.
It started out, our friends were all about,
People passing me all around.
I had a look around every nook,
But you were nowhere to be found.
So I went inside, to see if I could find,
You hiding anywhere.
Ain't it the way, every time it's just the same,
You never really seem to care.
Somebody said, they saw you upstairs,
It must of been about an hour ago.
And which room they saw you go into,
Well, nobody really seemed to know.
I gotta feeling in the pit of my stomach,
As I slowly started climbing the stairs.
With each one my heart is beating like a drum,
Wondering what I'm gonna find up there.
I tried to tell myself that it was nothing,
But this feeling in my gut wouldn't go.
And to that I gotta listen,
Otherwise I could be missin',
Something right underneath my nose.
I got to the top of the stairs, I could hear,
What sounded like screams of pain.
I became weary, because I could very clearly,
Hear him calling out your name.
You came out and your hair was all about,
With a guilty look in your eye.
I hadn't said, a single word yet,
But already you were starting to cry.
It was nothing, we were just talking,
I thought I heard you say,
Well I've never believed in much,
But I believed you anyway.
I woke up in a sweat, 'cause I was upset,
Because you weren't there anymore.
You know I never thought I'd see the day,
That you'd be walking right out my door.
Sometimes, things are alright,
But then suddenly they go wrong.
Well it's that and the seven hundred other reasons why,
I wrote this song.
You've been running for so long,
Scrambling just to get away.
Well I never believed in much,
But I believed in you every day.
