When I go to all the
Places we used to go
When I see all the
People we used to know

They ask me
Why I look so sad
I have to say
I got what I wanted
But I lost what I had

Without your love
I'm such a lonely man
That's what I am
And there's no one but
Myself to take the blame

Just to think
I've treated you so bad
Makes me sad
I got what I wanted
But I lost what I had

Since you've gone
The bright lights are dim and
The people don't seem the same
They're so used to seeing us together
Oh, but my, how things have changed

I went searching
Not knowing what I'd find
I looked for something
When I had it all the time

Now to think I've treated you
So bad, makes me sad
I went out and got what I wanted
But I lost what I had

I got everything that I wanted
But I lost what I had
I got what I wanted
But I lost everything I had...
