Why did I ever do that?
Why dd I hurt her so?
Why did I leave her that 
unfair and unjust woe?

Why was she the one
cursed to live with this?
Why was she the one
made to hate like this?

Why this fate
for my love so young and fair?
Why this hate
for myself, my actions, my share?

Why all the pain I've caused
to her t'was giv'n?
Why all this time we've lost
because of my great sin?
