Me and Valentina went down to the chapel but the gates were shut
I had my vows in my pocket and a gold plated ring for my honey love
We headed down Tropicana to the corner with a late night restaurant
We sat across from each other when I looked her in the eyes there was something gone

[Chorus]
Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'll do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of a blue moonlight
You got me on my knees
Valentina this is not like you

I got a job an the Nugget and I'll save a thousand dollars for a brand new start
She said: I didn't wanna do it but I did it cuz I didn't want to break your heart
The waiter whispered when he said we had to take the conversation to the parking lot
Please baby, please Valentina, baby you're the only thing I got

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'll do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moonlight
You got me on my knees
Valentina this is not like you

I hear the church bells ringing in my head and I take them everywhere I go
Valentina met a dealer and I heard they had a baby five months ago

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'll do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of a blue moonlight
You got me on my knees
Valentina don't say it's true
This is not like you
