[free light on MELODY]

[music: 98 Degrees – You Don’t Know]

MELODY (sing):

Who could know the emptiness inside

Every time I see your face

Too many feelings left behind

Do you wonder why

I turn away when you look at me

Never wanting your eyes to see

This desperate heart that knows

How perfect we could be

Baby cause you don’t know, how I feel

Living my life without you

Baby and you don’t know what it’s like

Loving you all this time

I’ll give you all my love, heart and soul

Risking it all on a chance

Now when I need you the most, you don’t know.
