You've ruined me now but I liked it
But I'm ruined, do you have a plan
Cuz I'm in your hands

You've ruined me now, Though I liked it
Now I'm ruined, I had no choice when I heard your voice
I know you said can't be misled
Now I'm the one, whose face is red.

You ruined me now, though I liked it
Now I'm ruined, Your chocolate eyes like buttons of lies.

You ruined me now, though I liked it
Now I'm ruined, I'm trying to part with what's in my heart.
You ruined me and how I thought I liked it
But I'm ruined my whole world is left turned upside down.

I heard me say I'm going away, But now I write you everyday.
You head me say I'm going away, But I'm on the floor outside your door

You've ruined me now
You've ruined me now
You've ruined me now

You ruined me now, but I liked it
But I'm ruined, do you have a plan cuz I'm in your hands.

    It's about her dog, just like her song 'man of the hour'. Greater the love, greater the hurt once they're gone. She new it was coming but she's still ruined now that he's gone...

    Have you ever had an experience in your life that was profound enough that any future similar experience can't measure up?... Maybe, a romantic encounter that was never supposed to be lasting but ruins you for future encounters... That's what i think this song is about.

    Relationship done - and someone who has definitely been abused "though i liked it"
    and keep coming back for more... Although you know it's done
