Lyrics

You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I could never imagine life being without you
I count off the minutes just waiting for you to appear
But what's funny is this was day that I chose to
Ask you to live with me, oh wait, I suppose you
Already suspected the reason I invited you here

Because you just said: "No
I've got somewhere else to go
And the plans I've made
Don't include you, I'm afraid"
And that's all that you would say

I still can't bring myself to accept what you've told me
I feel so dead inside, oh won't you just hold me?
How can you believe that these weeks just mean nothing at all?

You just said: "Thanks but no"
You made your mind up long ago
You didn't even ask for time
To think about just why I'm
So desperate for you to stay
Because you're going to leave me anyway
Well just give me a call
When you reach Montreal
At least I'll know you're there

You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I can't imagine life being without you
You know I can't stop dreaming about you
I can't imagine how

You could just say "Thanks, no
I've got somewhere else to go
And the plans I've made
Don't include you, I'm afraid"
I really wish that you could stay
But I guess your 'plane leaves any day
Well just give me a call
When it lands in Montreal
