Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Gotta find me a way
Get me back to yesterday
How can I ever hope to forget you
Won't you show me a place
Where I could hide my lonely face
I know you're gonna break my heart if I let you

Like a moth to the flame
Like a song without a name
I've never been the same since I met you
Like a bird on the wing
Got a brand new song to sing
I can't keep from singing about you

I'm beginning to see
What a fool you've made of me
I might have to break the law when I find you
Stop running away
I got a better game to play
You know I can't go on living without you
