[Reason] You’re driving home, it’s one PM
You cannot function, you’re a broken man
Your past is catching up with you
Only her tenderness can help you through

[Reason & Wife CHORUS] You see her smile at another man
[Wife] Did you see me smile at another man?
It was only us, please understand
[Reason] You see him hold her in his arms
[Wife] Did you see him hold me in his arms?
We needed warmth, we meant no harm
[Agony] Love left you, without me you’re all alone!

[Reason] Tears of sorrow fill your eyes
Your cold and wretched life flashes by
Is that your father standing there?
You turn the wheel, you no longer care
[Reason & Wife CHORUS]
[Agony] Love left you, without me you’re all alone!
Love wrecked you!

[Passion] You saw her smile at another man
Now you finally understand
He held her in his arms
You’ve nothing left, it’s gone too far

[Agony] Your memory begins to clear
Now you see what brought you here
You try to open up your eyes,
but the doubts will leave you paralyzed
[Wife] I smiled at another man
Please understand
We held me in his arms
We meant no harm

[Agony] Love left you, without me you’re all alone!
Love wrecked you! I am the oldest friend you’ve known!

    General CommentThe protagonist slowly recalls what happens.He remembers that he drove home in the night after the party he and his beloved attended.He is broken and confused because he saw her dancing with another man.Now we understand how the protagonist ends up in a hospital because he drove his car against a tree in order to kill himself
