Ray Price – An Eye For An Eye lyrics

Just because you lost your heart
Did you lose your conscience, too
Why must you punish me
For what he's done to you
Hatred caused by injured pride
Made you lie and deceive
You can't get back at him
So you take it out on me

An eye for an eye, a heart for a heart
You're makin' me pay for another man's crime
An eye for an eye, a heart for a heart
You didn't have one - so you took mine

It was just a game with you
With no feeling or regret
You thought by hurting me
It would help you to forget
Will I be like you are now
Will I do the things you've done
Will another have to lose
Before I can say I've won

(Repeat Chorus
