If you're listening now
I hope that I make more sense,
'Cause now I'm not quite so young,
I'm not quite so foolish in my defence,
Pictures that I hid in my room, they now come out
And those places we used to go, I talk about,
And now I'm not the man of your dreams
I took you almost there, I'll be damned if I care
Now if I'm not your man
We were almost there
Looks like I've lost you somewhere
And now I'm not the man in your life
NO! Well ok, maybe it hurts; maybe I still see my lips brush your face,
No! What the hell girl, I'm not fool enough to claim that I'm over you as yet!
No...oh no, no... and though I've still got some way to go
Lately I'm almost there, I'll be damned if I care
Now if I'm not your man,
We were almost there
Watch me someday, Yeah somehow I will make it somewhere
I'm going higher, I'll rise so much higher and I'll hold my head higher
Almost there, I still smell that perfume you wear
Although I'm not your man,
We were almost there...!
Almost there...
It looks like it's almost over,
It's almost over
It's almost over..... now
