I don't know if you ever loved me,
I don't know if you tried
I don't know if you were faithful while you were by my side
All I know is that I treated you like my Queen, every day and night
And on the day you left, I lost my fight

I don't know how I can make it,
Without you by my side
I don't know if I can fake it,
Without you in my life
All I know is that I keep on trying,
Everyday and every night
Trying to find the love I thought was mine

I don't know if I'll stop drinking when this bottles dry
I don't know if I'll stop thinking about you every night
But I know that I'll keep on trying to get back in your life
Trying to find the words to make things right

I don't know how you can hate me for the things I've done
I don't know what you say about me now that you're gone
All I hope is that you speak of me kindly,
Remember all our fun
The times we had before you went on the run

And maybe one day you will find your way
Back to all those things you left behind
And maybe one day I will have a place
A space to occupy your mind

I don't know what to tell you when I see you out at night
Hangin' on the arms of strangers,
Having a good time
All I know is that you're gone
And I guess that's just fine
But every night I still wish that you were mine
