 Everything is going wrong,
I've lost everything I had.
I have to sing this sad song,
To get back to her.
And I m gonna sing this song to you;
And I want you, and I want you,
And I want you, and I want you.
And I wanna tell you,
Everything is going through my mind,
And I want to sing and I want to sing,
And I want to sing and I want to sing,
This song with you,
And I wanna sing this song to everyone.
'Cos I want them to understand,
What I talkin' about,
I want you to understand, what I'm sayin...

(Fade)
