Afraid of the dark 
Still in pain

And I wanted so desperately to say
That you could trust me, but I was lying anyway

OK

What a thing to lose
Left out in the rain
Misused

You'll learn one day, won't you?
You'll learn some day, won't you?

What you had 
Was good for a while 
Then it changed
Got too intense
And that is strange

And I feel bad for you 
I feel bad for you
And I don't know why
I don't know why
'Cause I'm as dead as you
