Love will abide. Take things in stride.  
Sounds like good advice, but there's no one at my side;
And time washes clean love's wounds unseen; 
That's what someone told me, but I don't know what it means.

(Refrain:)
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine,
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long, long time.

Caught in my fears, blinking back the tears;  
I can't say you hurt me when you never let me near.
And I never drew one response from you, 
All the while you fell over girls you never knew. 

(Repeat Refrain:)

Wait for the day you go away,  
knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay;
And life's full of loss, who knows the cost, 
Living in the memory of the love that never was.
'Cause I've done everything I know to try and change your mind,
And I think I'm gonna miss you for a long, long time.

(Coda:)
'Cause I've done everything I know 
To try and make you mine,
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long, long time.
