Today I got a letter from someone
Just a friend we knew some time ago
And as I read between the lines I began to realize
He didn’t know I lost you a long long time ago.

Oh, I just can’t make it any longer
Everything I do is always wrong
I’m livin’ a lie and there’s no need in tryin’
To keep hangin’ on after all the good is gone.


Lord, I wish that I could die and there’s no use in tryin’
To keep hangin’ on after all the good is gone…
