Right through my fingers
Right through my fingers
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

I got no sympathy if you're feeling lonely
I tried to love you a long time ago
I gave my body, heart and my tomorrow
But you said no

Sure: I had a lover, now and then
But every time I only wanted you
In the mirror - your reflection
Oh, how I needed you

But if you're sitting all alone playing solitaire
I don't care - I really don't care
Because when I tried to love you - you said no -
You turned around - you walked out that door

Tables turning yeah - now you're sad and lonely
And you're calling my number late at night
Tearful messages asking for forgiveness
But this isn't right - oh, it just isn't right

You even called and said you were sorry
Baby - I am feeling sorry too
But apologies are cheap just like those promises
You always made - and couldn't keep

So, if you're sitting by that phone playing solitaire
And waiting for me to call you there -
You got to know - you got to know
I don't care - Oh, I just don't care

I got a thousand complicated reasons
If you ever show up at my door
My past with you is such a bitter pill to swallow -
I guess I don't love you - anymore -

Winter is such a cold season
But I saw your foot prints in the snow
You must have come / you must have come when I was sleeping -
I guess I'll never know

I saw you looking over your shoulder
Distance growing with every step you took
A little colder, sure - a little older
Right through my fingers
Right through my fingers
Right through my fingers
Our love slipped away
