You always wanted a lover
I only wanted a job
I've always worked for a living
How'm I gonna get through?
How'm I gonna get through?

I come here looking for money
Got to have it
And end up living with love, oh, oh
Now you left me with nothing
Can't take it
How'm I gonna get through?
How'm I gonna get through?

I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers
I read you books and talked for hours
Every day, so many drinks
Such pretty flowers, so tell me
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I ...

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better
But I don't know, oh
How I'm gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

You always wanted me to be something I wasn't
You always wanted too much, oh, oh
Now I can do what I want to - forever
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

At night, the people come and go
They talk too fast, and walk too slow
Chasing time from hour to hour
I pour the drinks and crush the flowers
What have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I ...

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better
But I don't know, oh
How I'm gonna get through?, baby
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?, baby
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?, baby
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?, tell me
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?, baby
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?, ah-ah-ha
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

How I'm gonna get through?
How I'm gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
I'm gonna get through, baby
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
You never ever left me, baby, think of me...
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Oh, babe
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

Gonna get through, baby, I'm gonna get
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Forever
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Gonna get through, baby, yeah,
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Gonna get through, get through, baby, ooh
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
