You know, when you say your marriage vows, they're supposed to be for real. I mean... if you think back about what you really said, you know, about, honor and loving and obeying till death do us part and all. But it shouldn't be that way, it should...it should, it shouldn't be lies because it turns out to be lies. If you don't honor what you said, you lie to God. The words should be changed.
Ooo now as I recall, we tried a million times Again and again and again, and that isn't all I gave my love to you each time to make amends Suddenly I start to realize I can't make it Pretty birds fly away, I had to leave you for my health's sake What to do? Make you pay, for leaving you, my fine, is to pay forever So if a fresh new love comes in, I won't say those words again Instead I'll say I'll try to love and protect you With all my heart as long as you want me to baby
Ooo if I love again I'm gonna try a new way this time Memories of the things we did; some we're proud of, some we hid So when two people have to part, sometimes it makes them stronger Do you remember all of the bullshit, baby? You say you love me with all your heart If you ever loved me will all of your heart You'd never take a million dollars to part I really tried, you know I tried, oh baby Although we tried, all of those promises was nothin' but lies I really tried, you know how I really tried, we really lied, didn't we baby? And on top of that you have scandalized my name What I can't understand is if you love me How could you turn me into the police? Didn't I love you good and try to take care of you? Best that I could You were so divine And your love was like mellow wine Pains of love, miles of tears, Enough to last me for my lifetime Broken hearts last for years, soon break away to the noonday sunshine One thing I can promise, friend: I'll never be back again But I'm not really bitter babe I wish you all the luck and all the love in the world, good love in the world (good luck in the world) But I know you'll never be satisfied No, you still want me standin' by your side
Memories haunt you all the time, I will never leave your mind Got judgement on your side; you've said bad things and you've lied Still I remember some of the good things baby Like love after dark and picnics in parks Those are the days I'll not forget in my life I'd rather remember, remember the joy we shared babe I'd rather remember all the fun we had All I ever really wanted was to love you and treat you right All we did was fuss and fight It don't matter baby, take a lesson from them all I never thought I'd see the day when you'd put me through what you put me through You tried your best, you say I gave you no rest
(repeat and fade): When did you stop loving me? When did I stop loving you?
