lyrics

Veronica, oh the sweet oil is burning my skin
as I get too close to you.
The flame of my love, oh Lord
let it never go out.
I hold it to the window for you to see
that I want you, how I want you.
But your eyes they look past me,
and your words how they scorn me
and your heart, oh your heart.
Just give me one more chance!
We could make it work, force it to work.

But the harder I try, the further you feel from me.
I break my back for a smile, while he barely lifts for a laugh.
And you're slipping away day by day.

Veronica, don't you know he feels nothing at all?
And that kiss, it was only a kiss to him.
The flame of his love lies beneath the ground,
please don't follow him, follow him down.
You hold it to the window for him to see,
but only see your face in the glass.
And his eyes they look past you
and his words how they burn you
and his heart, oh his heart.
Just give me one more chance!
We could make it work, force it to work.

But the harder you try, the further he feels from you.
You break your back for a smile, while he barely lifts for a laugh.
And he's slipping away day by day.

Just give me one more chance!
Well I know how you feel.
