Eurythmics – Train In Vain lyrics

They say you stand
By your man
Tell me something
I don't understand
You said you loved me
And that's a fact
And then you left me
Said you felt trapped
Well, something you can explain away
But the heartache's with me till this day
*Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Did you stand by me
No way
All the times
That we were closed
I remember
These things the most
I've seen all our dreams
Come tumblin' down I can't stay happy
Without you around
So alone I keep the wolves a bay
And there's only one thing I can say (*Repeat)
You must explain
Why this must be
Did you lie
When you spoke to me
Did you stand by me
No, not at all
Now I got a job
But it don't pay
I need new clothes
I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
But without your love
I won't make it through
Without you love
I won't make it through
But you don't understand my point of view
I suppose there's nothing I can do
(*Repeat x2)
Stand by me, no way
Stand by me, not at all
Stand by me, no way
Stand by me, not at all
Stand by me, no way
