Antecedent

{Intro}
Oh, Oh...
You left me standing...(echo)

{Verse One}
Maybe if I had known 
I would've said "no"
But I took a chance
Rolled the dice
Lost all the money 
I bet on us.

{Pre-Chorus}
Was it foreshadowing 
When you said you needed a break?
When you left me standing in the rain
Without an umbrella
Pleasure with pain
Sunshine then rain...

{Chorus}
Filled my heart with so much love
So much love and I...
Don't know what I'm gonna do without you
Let go when I needed you the most
Now my heart's an empty host
And I'm stuck with the ghosts
Of me and you.

{Verse Two}
Some say this is just a game
But if it is, at what cost?
All I wanted was you
But I lost every bet
And I placed quite a few
Empty Pockets and still no you.

{Pre-Chorus}
Was it foreshadowing 
When you said you needed a break?
When you left me standing in the rain
Without an umbrella
Pleasure with pain
Sunshine then rain...

{Chorus}
Filled my heart with so much love
So much love and I...
Don't know what I'm gonna do without you
Let go when I needed you the most
And I'm stuck with the ghosts
Of me and you.

{Bridge}
Touched me with Ice then Fire
Dragged me through the mire
F*ck it all, just let it all burn
This filthy funeral pyre
My only desire was...you.
Always you.

{Pre-Chorus}
Was it foreshadowing 
When you said you needed a break?
When you left me standing in the rain
Without an umbrella
Pleasure with pain
Sunshine then rain...

{Chorus}
Filled my heart with so much love
So much love and I...
Don't know what I'm gonna do without you
Let go when I needed you the most
And I'm stuck with the ghosts
Of me and you...

{Outro}
Nothing ever goes as planned...

Filled my heart with so much love
So much love and I...
Don't know what I'm gonna do without you now.
