When I gave you my heart and it was not what you wanted
Now the walls say your name and the pictures are haunted
Does my ring burn your finger? Did my love weigh you down?
Was the promise too much to keep around?

I remember your words and I can't keep from cryin
I could never believe that your kisses were lyin'
Was there somethin' from the past buried in a shallow grave?
Did you think that it was too far gone to save?

Please tell me baby, please tell me now
You say that I should just go on
Now please tell me, how

Now it's just me and the night and I'm so broken hearted
I just wait in the dark here for my dearly departed
Did my ring burn your finger? Did my love weigh you down?
Was the promise too much to keep around?
