You wanted me

I wanted you

Falling in love was just too easy to do


You pledged your love

And I pledged mine

We sealed the promise ‘till the end of time



Did I see you in another’s arms

You held him closely giving him all your charms

Tell me baby just what I see

I guess my eyes are playing tricks

I guess my eyes are playing tricks on me


You made it clear

I heard it plain

But now I’m confused and nothing seems the same


When did we change

How hard could we try

I could have sworn what we had couldn’t die


Chorus (ad lib to end)
