When did the lights go out?
The day that you met her?
How did this fall apart?
How did this all occur?

I tried the best I could
To satisfy your needs
Tell me what went wrong
Tell me, tell me …. please.

I tried to make it work
Gave in to you each time
Did all the things you wanted 
Hoping you would change your mind.

When the music stopped
I scrambled for a seat
She was next to you
You should have been with me.

No room at the inn
I’ve been pushed aside
I just wasn’t good enough
To make the cut ….. I tried.
