(coverdale/vandenberg)

I used to be the man for you,
Did everything you wanted me to,
So, tell me, baby,
What did I do wrong...

I told you what you wanted to know,
Precious secrets never spoken before.
All I'm asking,
Where did I go wrong...

Some things are better left unsaid,
But, all I do is cry instead,
Now, I've cried me a river,
Thinking how it used to be...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two.
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever.
So, tell me, baby,
Where did I go wrong...

Everything I had was yours,
More than I have ever given before,
So, won't you tell me
Did I hurt you so bad...

I guess I'm fooling myself,
'cause I want you and no one else.
And I can't understand
Why you're doing these things to me...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two...
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever.
So, tell me, baby,
Where did I go wrong, where did I go wrong...

Now my heart is breaking,
My whole world is shaking,
'cause I can't understand
Why you're doing these things to me...

There've been too many tears falling,
And there've been too many hearts
Breaking in two...
Remember what we had together,
Believing it would last forever...
So, tell me, baby,

Where did I go wrong...
