What exactly did I do

   in a former life

For you to beat me black and blue

   and cause me so much strife

Did I kill or harm or steal

   could I have betrayed a friend

Now all I see and all I feel

   is how it's now the end

My life is full of sadness

   and I'm in so much pain

I descend into the madness

   as it starts to rain

The loneliness when you depart

   has torn me up inside

You said you'd never break my heart

   was it all just one big lie
