I can almost hear you sigh
I can almost hear you cry
On every crowded street
All the places we would meet

What'll I do without you?
They say life goes on
I'm feeling sorry for myself
I can't believe you're gone

And you acted much too calm
You turned on all the charm
You had a cold look in your eyes

And I feel your tongue on mine
Silky smooth like wine
I'm living with these memories
It's all that's left of you and me

I can almost hear you sigh, almost hear you cry
When you made sweet love to me
And you turned on all the charm, acted much too calm
You had a cold look in your eyes

Did it mean nothing?
Was it all in vain?
Was I just your fool
Or was the pleasure pain?

And have you set me free?
Or will I wake up in the morning
And find out it's been a bad dream?

Come on, I beg you
I want to be your main man

I can almost hear you sigh, almost hear you cry
When you made sweet love to me
I can almost see you smile, it stretched to half a mile
You had a stone cold look in your eyes

Yeah
Come on
Almost see you laugh
I don't need no photograph
Come on, come on, girl
Nothing left to say now
I just can't believe, can't believe you're gone
No, no, come on, baby, yeah
