Lyrics: A. Hoff
Music: S. Babila

I never had illusions of you being the one
Kept on telling myself that we were having fun
But ain’t nothing was fun about it
And I really couldn’t do without it
Who was I foolin’
It was my own life I ruined
And I know I cheated myself
But boy you did it first
And I couldn’t believe you’d ever have the nerve
To go taking my love for granted
Boy I never could understand it
And you left me without reason
For all of your deceiving

And I just gotta know
Why you hurt me so bad
Cut me off at the knees
Why the hell can’t you see
All I wanted was you
And you threw it away
Tossed me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is
Why don’t you see
What you did to me
Not the woman I was
Don’t like what I’ve become
And you don’t even care
That you stabbed me in the back
Left me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is why

And I cried every night
‘Til I had nothing left
So numb from the pain
And so filled with regret
And you say you’re sorry
But I can’t believe
You would know how that feels
When you made me so weak
You kept trying to hurt me
And you can’t take it back
Late at night, drowned my pillow
Over your disrespect
You know I hate that I can’t let it go
It kills me to keep holding on
Now I just need to know

And I just gotta know
Why you hurt me so bad
Cut me off at the knees
Why the hell can’t you see
All I wanted was you
And you threw it away
Tossed me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is
Why don’t you see
What you did to me
Not the woman I was
Don’t like what I’ve become
And you don’t even care
That you stabbed me in the back
Left me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is why

Why did you hold me
When you didn’t mean what you said
When you played with my head
Why couldn’t you be
Who I wanted you to be
Why wouldn’t you know me
Why did I try so hard
When I knew you were such a lost cause
Why couldn’t I see
There was no mystery
I was so misled in your make-believe

And I just gotta know
Why you hurt me so bad
Cut me off at the knees
Why the hell can’t you see
All I wanted was you
And you threw it away
Tossed me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is
Why don’t you see
What you did to me
Not the woman I was
Don’t like what I’ve become
And you don’t even care
That you stabbed me in the back
Left me out in the cold
And all I wanna know is why
