The Lyrics

We met in a place I used to want,
Now I just walk by it for show,
Can't bear to go in without you know,
Hopefully I want,
Hopefully I want.

But Annie is standing in the door,
With a look on her face I can't just want to walk,
She tells me that her heart is sore,
And pulls me in,
She pulls me in.

She says "love in the time of war is not good",
"He was my man but they didn't care",
"Sent him far away from here",
"No goodbye",
"No goodbye".

I don't tell her that I once kissed you too,
Or about all the things we used to do,
I kiss her hair and think of you,
Walking down ,
The road you found.

We met in a place I used to see,
Now I only walk by it slow,
Can't bear to go in without you know,
Hopefully I want,
Hopefully I want,
Hopefully I want
Hopefully I want.
