Would you mind if I hurt you
Understand that I need to
Wish that I had other choices
Than to harm the one I love

What have you done now?

I know I'd better stop trying
You know that there's no denying
I won't show mercy on you now

I know I should stop believing
I know that there's no retrieving
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I,have been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
What have you done now?
Why? Why does faith make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you

What have you done (x4)
What have you done now
What have you done (x4)
What have you done now

Would you mind if I killed you?
Would you mind if I tried to cause you hell?
Cause you have turned into my worst enemy
You carry hate that I feel
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I, have been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
What have you done now?
Why? Why does faith make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you

What have you done (x4)
What have you done now
What have you done (x4)
What have you done now

I will not fall
Won't let it go
We will be free
When it ends

I, have been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away
What have you done now?
Why? Why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us
Between me and you
(x2)

    I love this song and it's sentiments. I understand it even better no that the guy I like just told me he is in love with my best friend. I think this song is all about things like that, Being betrayed and not being able to blame anyone but yourself, losing the one you love, that sort of thing...

    I feel the song is coming from an obsessive young heart. Regrettably Love that has turned to a kind of hate that took a life. Confused young soul that never felt love before keeps trying. Rather loose what little they have Ends her lovers life (no mercy)so it won't be shared with anyone else. "What have you done".
    Scary thought. I could be wrong. Jealousy is a terrible thing that can get a hold of you.
