Now I'll never have my chance


You know he's stopped eating,
Drinking, stopped sleeping?
He's even stopped laughing,
Stopped smiling,
Haven't heard him crack a joke,
Since you turned your back,
He doesn't seem to see things,
Doesn't want to know,
You left him and you broke him,
Now I'll never have my chance,
He's stopped really living,
Since you walked out the door,
You took his heart in your vanity box,
He doesn't hear me anymore,
Doesn't shirk my touch,
I've tried to call him back to life,
But you took his soul,
Snuck it out the door,
In your shirts front pocket,
You left him and you broke him,
Now I'll never have a chance,
You know he's stopped laughing,
Since you walked out on him?
You know he's stopped smiling,
Since you broke him down?
You know since you've gone,
I'll never have my chance?
You know he just stopped when you left?
