If You Called

The lowering sun stretches shadows across the windy plain
I'm thinking on the time that 's passed, how you never felt the same
When I said it's hard to leave you said, it's hard to watch you go
I shouldn't have believed you, but back then how could I know

I'm trying hard not to love you
My heart don't know that you don 't care at all
I say aloud that I do not need you
But I know I'd come to you if you called

The moonlight down by the riverside must have played a trick upon my eyes
Cause I thought I saw forever with you, I could not realize
And I can 't stand to search this heart and find I still love you
And it hurts my pride to know I'd take you back if you asked me to

I'm trying hard not to love you
My heart don't know that you don 't care at all
I say aloud that I do not need you
But I know I'd come to you if you called

I'm trying to get you off my mind
But your love's a memory I can't leave behind

I'm trying hard not to love you
My heart don't know that you don 't care at all
I say aloud that I do not need you
But I know I'd come to you if you called
