View from a bridge - Can't take anymore

View from a bridge - Can't take anymore.
I guess it all began about a year ago
Like a cheap love magazine

You know the kind you read about and have to laugh
At the pages in between.
Now I can't believe that fool inside is me
'cos Ijust can't face the world I've grown to see.
View from a bridge - Can't take anymore
. . .
I saw you kissing her
I saw you makin her
In the soft sheets in between.
But when you turned around I saw your eyes were fire
And you crashed out aU. my dreams

And like a fool Ijust stood there and let it go -
I should have fought right back and let my feelings show.
View from a bridge - Can't take anymore
. . .

You sure as hell knew how to make a fool outa me.
You cut me down for the things you want
And now it's killing me
Oh -
But then a voice said jump and I just let go and I'm floating out in space.
But then I feel your arms and I turn around to a ghost without a face

And I just don't know what's fact or fantasy
'cos when I look below the bridge I see it's me.
View from a bridge - Can't take anymore
. . .
View from a bridge - Can't take anymore
. . .
View from a bridge - Can't take anymore
. . .

    A girl commits suicide by jumping off a bridge when she discovers her lover in bed with another woman - but at the end - after she's presumably dead - she sees her lover's ghost so did he do himself in too - or did she kill him? Fancy topping yourself over such a scumbag - silly cow
