Shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run
I shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run

She's gone and I know
That the pain is beginnin' to show
I'm hurting inside

My world fell apart
But love's still burning in my heart
But where can I hide?

Love turned to stone
And I'm tired of bein' alone
Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil
Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil

There's a voice in my head
Runnin' over everything she said
And I can't erase it

Love was a game
Well, I lost and it's a cryin' shame
But I gotta face it.

Nowhere to go
And time is moving slow
Yeah, burnin' the midnight oil
Yeah, burnin', burnin' the midnight oil

Hot water getting ready to boil
Drink coffee 'til my nerves are wired
I'm so high, I think I'll never be tired
Feeling sad and I'm mad, all the bad luck that I've had

Shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run
I shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run

Shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run
I shoulda listened to someone
Love has gone, I've got nowhere to run

I'll lay back on my bed
Memories runnin' through my head
I tried to forget

The clock's striking twelve
I'm still trying to convince myself
It's not over yet

Love turned to stone
And I'm tired of bein' alone
Yea, burnin' the midnight oil
Yea-ee-yea, burnin' the midnight oil
