First Waltz Kristjan / CopperDogMusic / 2001

I spend too much time alone - without you
You ask me why I don't come by,
I don't feel that you want me to
I've had my suspicions There's somebody else
I'll put on a brave face, but I can't fool myself

The love we had has changed somehow, and I don't know why
I do not want to face a certain fate, I'd rather live with a lie
When we get together, well I can see it in your eyes
You're not thinking about me, it's some other guy

Well I've had my suspicions, there's somebody else
I'll put on that brave face
But I've been such a fool.
