The Cranberries – What You Were lyrics

Now it's easy for to see,
Why peoples lives are so lonely?

And you never understood,
You never really could,
You were wrong.

What you were, what you were,
I couldn't say.

'Cause you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And I'm lonely.

Yeah, you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And you're gone.

'Cause you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And you're gone.

What you were, what you were,
I couldn't say.

It took something hard like this,
Mistaken to resist,
And I'm lonely.
