Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la

There is one thing that I would die for
It's when you say: "My life is your hands"
'Cause when you're near me your love is all I need
Now I can't imagine
What do you want from me
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

What do you want from me (sha-la la la la-la la)
It's not how it used to be (sha-la la la la-la la)
You've taken my life away (sha-la la la la-la la)
Ruining everything (sha-la la la la-la la)
Give me something I can rely on
Far away from the life that I once knew
What does it matter, that's all I have to say
And I can't imagine

What do you want from me
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything
What do you want from me
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la
Sha-la la la la-la la

What do you want from me (sha-la la la la-la la)
It's not how it used to be (sha-la la la la-la la)
You've taken my life away (sha-la la la la-la la)
Ruining everything (sha-la la la la-la la)

    General CommentThis song is sooo good..weird though, such dark lyrics with such a bouncy sha la la.. It's a song you want to dance to, but the words sink in and you can't. Makes me wish I had a chance to set things right with a lover after it went sour.

    General CommentIt's good for when your partner has done something wrong to you, I think... though you should probably play it away from them

    General CommentA relationship changes your life. This isn't always a good thing. Sometimes you just wish you had your old life back.
