quite a while we belonged together
our love was strong
I never had much money but
still we had our little home
BABY

what you pretend
is that all the time we had
was like inside prison walls
lonely and hungry and hurting

you were afraid of me being a rockstar
so I was a waiter barkeeper and painter
steelworker was freezing and sweating outside
I did what I could but it was never right
believe me girl you were the only one
to make me feel so wrong
BABY

what you pretend
is that all the time we had
was like inside prison walls
lonely and hungry and hurting

you want me to leave
cause I am your misery
the reason for all your pain
don’t you forget I was trying to be
like you wanted me to
just like you wanted me to be

what you pretend
is that all the time we had
was like inside prison walls
lonely and hungry and hurting

you want me to leave
cause I am your misery
the reason for all your pain
don’t you forget I was trying to be
like you wanted me

It’s a part of the story
‘bout boyfriends and girlfriends
and their ways of making love end
don’t ask me I don’t understand
I will never understand
