Suddenly, last summer
Started going out of my head
In a tiny hotel room
Lying naked on a bed

I knew what you were doing,
And I knew what you'd done
Your life with me was ending
Your new life had begun

I was cursing your name
And I was cursing that room
And I was praying for the strength
To stop loving you

I started writing you a letter
Which turned into the book
Gonna reach across the ocean
And force you to look

What kind of man was I?
Who could sacrifice your happiness
To satisfy his pride

What kind of man was I?
Who could delay your destiny
To appease his turning mind

When you came back to me
I went down on a one knee
With a glint in my eyes
And a rose between my teeth
And I pushed out my tongue
For you to see,
That I've been dying of a thirst
For your company

You quench my loneliness
With your tears
And our clothes fell away
As we rolled back the years

We couldn't deny it,
We could not admit it

Was our love too strong to die?
We were just to weak to kill it

Was our love too strong to die?
Or were we just too weak to kill it?

Was our love too strong to die?
We were just too weak to kill it
