I ALMOST DO

I bet this time of night youíre still up
I bet youíre tired from a long hard week
I bet youíre sittin' in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city, and I bet
Sometimes you wonder about me

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I donít, I almost do
I almost do

I bet you think I either moved on or hate you
Cause each time you reach out, thereís no reply
I bet it never, ever occurred to you
That I canít say hello to you and risk another goodbye

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I donít, I almost do
I almost do

We made quite a mess, babe
Itís probably better off this way
And I confess baby
In my dreams youíre touching my face
And asking me if I'd want to try again with you
And I almost do

And I just want to tell you
It takes everything in me
Not to call you
And I wish I could run to you
And I hope you know that
Every time I donít, I almost do
I almost do

I bet this time of night youíre still up
I bet youíre tired from a long hard week
I bet youíre sittin' in your chair by the window
Looking out at the city and I hope
Sometimes you wonder about me
