Sometimes I wonder
What's in store for me

Your love could open

Heaven's door to me

But you don't care a straw for me

That's life I guess

My days and nights

Are starting off with you

My sugar kisses taste like salt to you

But why should I find fault with you

That's life I guess

The world was bright when you loved me

Sweet was the touch of your lips

The world went dark when you left me

And then there came a total eclipse
Nobody knows how cruel fate can be

How close together love and hate can be

Goodbye just clean the slate for me

That's life I guess
