(Verse 1)
There are no words for love
For who can describe such extraordinary things?
Trying to fly high above
This earth
Through the sky
Would be tough
Even for an angel with open wings
And me, I've never flown before
But now you've gone
And left me here to be alone once more

(1st Chorus)
Until I know...
How can my broken heart be mended?
Oh, when will I know..?
How can I go on living without you?
Will I ever know..?
Where can I turn now that my world has ended?
Or will I never know..?
'Cause I can't seem to stop thinking about you
And my broken heart

(Verse 2)
There is no place for love
For what right have I to act out such a happy part?
The moon and the stars high above
Remain
In the sky
They're not enough
To ease the pain inside my broken heart
These things I've never known before
But now you've gone
And left me here to be alone once more

(2nd Chorus)
Until I know...
How can my broken heart be mended?
Oh, when will I know..?
How can I go on living without you?
Will I ever know..?
Where can I turn now that my world has ended?
Or will I never know..?
'Cause I can't seem to stop thinking about you
All day... and all night
You know I've tried again and again
Oh, but nothing that I try ever seems to mend
My broken heart

(Instrumental / Bridge)
I get no sleep since you've been gone
They say I'll be alright, but 'alright''s all wrong
'Cause I can't keep my heart from yearning
Any more than I can stop the world from turning

(Repeat 2nd chorus)

(Repeated ending)
How can I mend my broken heart?
