Didn't I try hard enough
To understand your way
Didn't I stay strong enought
Through all our stormy days.

Like I'd be clinging to our little house should read: Like ivy clinging...
So close were you and I
Then came the day you just walked away
And I lost you, didn't I?

Didn't I kiss you often enough
Didn't I hold you tight
Didn't I say I love you
Each time we said goodnight.

Darling please tell me what I didn't do
Cause I tried so hard to make you see
That above everything in this world
You were all that was meant for me.

And you know I've thought I was all you wanted
In fact you've told me so
But I guess I failed somewhere along the way
But just where I failed I'd give my life to know.

Didn't I kiss you often enough
Didn't I hold you tight
Didn't I say I love you
Each time we said goodnight?

Like I'd be clinging to our little house
So close were you and I
Then came the day you just walked away
And I lost you, didn't I?...
