​One Left Standing

This song is by Mike & The Mechanics and appears on the album Rewired (2004).

You've got to hold on tonight
Do you think that it's easy trying to take me for a ride?
Signs... time that you recognised them
Doesn't work anymore, it's gone and you can't make it right

Please just read my lips, get the message now baby
I been tangled enough, don't get me caught up again
Time I've lost count of the times I've been had do you blame me
But enough of this madness, no more to say it's been said

All this time I've been holding it together
If you walked a mile in my shoes you'd know what
I'd been going through
How many times can we go back?
Make the same mistakes, it's written all over your face

You and I were a river flowing
Now the tide has turned and all of my tears have run dry
How come I am the one left standing?
Now I'm drowning inside
All of my tears have run dry

Back right where I started again
But it's hard to forget
Everything's so different then
I would have moved mountains
If you'd asked me to
That's a lifetime ago
You've got to face up to the truth

Forgetting all of our mistakes
I just keep on falling right back in again

You and I were a river flowing
Now the tide has turned
And all of my tears have run dry
How come I am the one left standing?
Now I'm drowning inside
All of my tears have run dry

Turned my back and I don't regret it
One more time would be hell if I let it
Take my word for it, don't forget it
Check my eyes cause my tears have run dry

You and I were a river flowing
Now the tide has turned
And all of me tears have run dry
How come I am the one left standing?
Now I'm drowning inside
All of my tears have run dry
