I was 17 and I thought you were one in a millionI never dreamed anyone (would) ever take you awayAnd at 21 tied the knot with a holy unionBut I never thought I’d live to regret that day* you put a scar on my heart I can’t cover up and hideI’m on the ropes in the corner with no fighter left inside** under the heel of a stranger he holds you captive by his charmsI saw the signs but not the danger now he’s the hero in your armsEvery night you go out tell me it’s with a friendYou come back late know you’ve seen him againAnd at 29 I realize the dreaming has to endAlthough I’ve lost your love still the ghost remains* repeat** repeatOh yeah,(instrumental break ) ** repeat 2.75 more times
