Hooow?
Haaaa-oooo-wow?
H-ooow?
Wow

I can't believe what you said to me
Last night, we were alone
You threw your arms up
Baby you gave up, you gave up

I can't believe how you looked at me
With your James Dean glossy eyes
In your tight jeans with your long hair
And your cigarette stained lies

Could we fix you if you broke?
And is your punch line just a joke?

I'll never talk again
Oh boy you've left me speechless
You've left me speechless, so speechless

And I'll never love again,
Oh boy you've left me speechless
You've left me speechless, so speechless

I can't believe how you slurred at me
With your half-wired broken jaw
You popped my heart seams
All of my bubble dreams, bubble dreams

I can't believe how you looked at me
With your Johnnie Walker eyes
He's gonna get you and after he's through
There's gonna be no love left to rye

And I know that it's complicated
But I'm a loser in love so baby
Raise a glass to mend
All the broken hearts
Of all my wrecked up friends

I'll never talk again
Oh boy you've left me speechless
You've left me speechless so speechless

And I'll never love again,
Oh friend you've left me speechless
You've left me speechless, so speechless

H-ooow?
H-oooo-wow?
H-ooow?

H-ooow?
H-oooo-wow?
H-ooow?

And after all the drinks and bars that we've been to
Would you give it all up?
Could I give it all up for you?

And after all the boys and the girls that we've been through
Would you give it all up?
Could you give it all up?
If I promise boy to you

That I'll never talk again
And I'll never love again
I'll never write a song
Won't even sing along
I'll never love again

H-ooow?

So speechless
You left me speechless, so speechless

Will you ever talk again?
Oh boy, why you so speechless?
You've left me speechless so speechless

Some men may follow me
But you choose death and company
Why you so speechless? Oh oh ohhhh

    Lady GG is truly doing her artistic thing, transforming real life pain into art. Still paying dues. If I had not heard from this board about a 'story' behind this song I would have just interpreted it to mean that her soused boyfriend was walking out and having indiscriminate sex, giving up the safety of a committed relationship and testing the sometimes diseased waters of promiscuity, leaving her "speechless" and disillusioned and he to "Death and Company". Hard to see it any other way really for me sans some background. The artistic world really does, at times, create odd, beautiful, and cryptic articles: Sheer 'magic'! This is a piece worthy of support for her sainted artistic ego (no meanness intended, but clear evidence noted; and learning from her): She's earned it. I mean, who talks about having her power stolen through he VJJ (thanks Oprah). Really! She's been around. Kudos to her continued growth and ours with her! Looking forward as a new fan.

    this song may have been written for her dad, but I think most people took it from a relationship standpoint. this song is so beautiful and amazing. It's truly one of her best.♥

    @(emilyannerar): first of all if you watch Ellen show, Lady Gaga just told the whole world that her dad is fine, "he got the surgery and he's alright!"- Lady G
    Get on your facts right!

    I agree that it's 'Death and Company', but it is, in fact, 'arms up'. She most definitely does not say 'hands'.
    But anyway. I'm recording a cover of this song in two days, and Lady Gaga just did an awesome job with this song.
    It is supposedly about Lady Gaga trying to convince her Dad to get surgery, and he didn't get it, so he died. Not sure if that's true, but it's what I heard.
    But this is an awesome song. I don't understand how people couldn't like it.

    Her voice isn't fake, and it's not horrible at all.
    If that was true,
    she wouldn't have billion of fans, she wouldn't have all the awards that she has now,
    and have the record of for having four singles from the same debut album reach #1 on the Billboard charts.
    Lady Gaga is talented.
