Strange to see you babe
Ain't nothing down here free
Did you lose your ticket?
Hope you weren't looking for me

I'm still wearing the scars I got
From being your fool
You messed me up pretty good, babe
I didn't mean to ruin you

I remember when I first saw you babe
You were looking pretty good
You said you were looking for love
Well then why didn't you?

You just sat there taking
Everything you could get
Never thought one day
You might have to pay for it

Did you ever dream baby one day you might fall
& feel your back against the wall?
Did you ever dream baby one day you might crawl?
Did you ever dream?

Now when you're putting on your face
I guess that you feel kind of low
Knowing that you past your best
& you've got nothing to show

Well, baby, you know just as well as I
Some fool is going to fall your way
Only this time around you might have to pay for it

Did you ever dream baby one day you might fall
& feel your back against the wall?
Did you ever dream baby one day you might crawl?

Did you ever dream, baby?
When you had no need, baby?
Did you ever dream
That you might have to
Pay for it?

Did you ever dream baby one day you might fall
Yeah, & feel your back against the wall?
Did you ever dream baby one day you might crawl?

Strange to see you baby
Mmm, strange, very strange
'Cause you messed me up good
'Cause you messed me
Messed me up pretty good, now, didn't you, baby?

I swear I didn't mean to ruin you
I swear I didn't mean to ruin you
How do you admit what you didn't mean to do?
'Cause I swear I didn't mean to ruin you

I'm looking at you now
& you're paying now
Yes you are now

& you never dreamed that.
