1.  The streets I walk are full of strangers: I pass among them unknown.

 Avoiding new love and all its dangers; my heart a fortress made of stone.

 Lovers pass me by in the evening lights, reminding me how much I’m alone.


  

You tended flowers in the garden of my dreams, always close throughout the night.

The grass is paler now, how lonely living seems, I’ve fallen backwards from the light.

I wasted my chance to put things right. I know I let you down again.




2.  I was a schemer and a dreamer, I know my bad ways got you down.

 I was a faker, a heartbreaker; I was a fool and such a clown.

 But please listen, I’m a changed man; can’t go on living with this pain.



You tended flowers in the garden of my dreams, always close throughout the night.

The grass is paler now, how lonely living seems, I’ve fallen backwards from the light.

I wasted my chance to put things right. And I know I let you down again.




Oh, I’m a different man, not a perfect man, but a wiser man, it’s true.

Please let me show you my new world, where I’m waiting for you.




You tended flowers in the garden of my dreams, always close throughout the night.

The grass is paler now, how lonely living seems, I’ve fallen backwards from the light.

I wasted my chance to put things right, and I know I won’t let you down again.
