Back at the start it was all hearts and flowers
Candlelight rendezvous that lasted for hours
But since he's gone, you toss and turn until dawn
Nobody ever told you it would feel like this when

Each tender dream just seems to fade like dew does
Your arms keep reachin' for the lover man who was
Faithless and mean, but now he's gone from the scene
They oughta write a song about that

About the way it hurts when you realize
All those promises were false
About the lonely sound when the music dies
Like a broken waltz

If there were prizes for those sighs of regret
You'd be the envy of the "Oh-Woe-is-Me" set
Romance is through, it's just the piper and you
They oughta write a song about that

Romance is through, it's just the piper and you
They oughta write a song about that
Somebody somewhere...
Oughta write a song about that

Sometimes at night, I miss you
I wonder who's there with you
But it's no big issue now
I miss your kiss, I miss your touch
But I don't miss it that much

Your arms were oh-so thrilling
When I was young and willing
But your love, it was killing me
I must admit, I miss the rush
But I don't miss it that much

The bad news is I'm all alone
Watching movies all night
The good news is the heartache's gone
Since you're out of my life

Everybody makes mistakes
Every heart gets a few bad breaks
But I've had all I can take
I miss the dizzy schoolgirl crush
But I don't miss it that much

I miss your kiss, I miss your touch
But I don't miss it that much
