you conquered

It’s 3 AM and I can’t sleep
So I pull on my jeans and I climb into my jeep,
And I’m driving to nowhere, sort of searching for grace,
And I find myself parking out in front of your place,

And I know it’s over,
I heard you say it’s so,
But though you say it’s over
My heart just won’t let go

I came, I saw, you conquered,
Now my heart is not my own
I came, I saw, you conquered,
Don’t leave me here alone
Can’t you see?
Don’t you understand?
Won’t you take me out of my Neverland?
I came, I saw, but baby you conquered.

What kind of magic is this, what sort of spell have you cast?
I only wanted one night, but now I want us to last,
I’m a Peter Pan boy who couldn’t stay in one place
But I flew into your castle, and I’m slain by your face

And I know it’s over,
You told me to my face,
But though I know it’s over,
My heart has lost it’s place.

I came, I saw, you conquered,
Now my heart is not my own
I came, I saw, you conquered,
Don't leave me here alone
Can’t you see?
Don’t you understand?
Won’t you take me out of my Neverland?
I came, I saw, but baby you conquered.
