Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
Well I gave you everything I had,
But you left me sitting on my own.
Did you have to treat me oh so bad,
All I do is hang my head and moan.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
If there's something I have said or done,
Tell me what and I'll apologise.
If you don't I really can't go on,
Holding back these tears in my eyes.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.
Well I beg you on my bended knees,
If you'll only listen to my pleas,
Is there anything I can do,
'cos I really can't stand it,
I'm so in love with you.
Tell me why you cried,
And why you lied to me.

    This was one of my "songs" to my husband for 17 LOOONG years. One of the songs that became a daily dirgy of a love on its' death knoll meaning I know it's useless to stop him from murdering the love between us. Meaning I allow him free access to murder the love. It's the only way to free me of him completely.
