There's a cold dark stare to my lover
And there's a big black mark on my soul
There was a time we were lost in one another
And now we're lost in the part of letting go

I know I'm a hard man to follow
And I know I'm the cause of all our pain
But when I'm home I just fade into her shadows
And I'm lost in her thoughts when I'm away

She said lay it on the line
Let me know what's on your mind
Tell me darling where did we go so wrong
What do you get from loving me
Why is our marriage in danger
'Cause I get more happiness from a bottle
And get more love from a stranger

I remember the days when we still had that flame
And it kept us both warm through the night
But you took up one thing
And I took up with another
Life passes and old fires die

She said lay it on the line
Let me know what's on your mind
Tell me darling where did we go so wrong
What do you get from loving me
Why is our marriage in danger
'Cause I get more happiness from a bottle
And get more love from a stranger
