Oh, you sentimental fool
Yes, you sentimental fool
Love, those broken veins
Made you so afraid
Of that wishful wishing well

Well now you're in misery and in pain
Well now you're in misery and in pain
So she broke your heart
And you let her die
Well that's your name and that's the game

'Cause they're taking it all away
They're taking it all away
They're taking it all away

'Cause they're taking it all away
They're taking it all away
They're taking it all away
They're taking it all away (repeat)
