Another night with open eyes
Too late to sleep, too soon to rise
You're short of breath, is it a heart attack?
Hot and feverish you face the fact

You're in love and it feels like shame
Because she's gone and made a fool of you in public again
You're in love and it feels like pain
Because you know there's too much truth in everything she claims

So ask yourself now, can you forgive her
If she wants you to?
Ask yourself, can you even deliver
What she demands of you?

You drift into the strangest dreams
Of youthful follies and changing teams
Admit you're wrong, oh, no, not yet
Then you wake up and remember that you can't forget

She's made you some kind of laughin' stock
Because you dance to disco and you don't like rock
She'd make fun of you and even in bed
Said, "She was gonna go and get herself a real man instead"

So ask yourself now, can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
Ask yourself, can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish
But that's childish, so childish

Remember when you were more easily led
Behind the cricket pavilion and the bicycle shed
Trembling as your dreams came true
You looked right into those blue eyes and knew

It was love and now you can't pretend
You've forgotten all the promises of that first friend
It's not enough, she knows how you feel
But she's not prepared to share you with the memory

So ask yourself now, can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
Ask yourself, can you even deliver
What she demands of you?

Ask yourself now, can you forgive her
If she begs you to?
And ask yourself, can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish
