So you're in love, that's so good for you.
Live it up girl 'cause it never lasts long.
It's heaven for now but not for long.
It's gonna hurt you, it's going to make you feel so bad.

Once I could love, I could trust, I could not doubt
But that was just about the worst thing that I could do.
It was just about the worst thing that I could do.

Maybe not now, but it won't take long
Before it's gonna hurt you and truly do you some harm.

Once I was open, could hope, I had no doubt
But that was the worst thing that I could do.
It was just about the worst thing that I could do.

Once I came close to that most elusive fire burning with hopeless love and desire
But it was just about the worst thing that I could do.
It was just about the worst thing that I could do.

En el pasado estuve ciega como tu.
Atrapada y perdida como tu.
Embelesada y suspendida en mi jaula de plata.
Esos recuerdos te acompanaran toda la vida.

(In the past I was blind as you
Trapped and lost like you with no escape
Suspended in my silver cage.
These memories will remain with you forever.)
