Verse

She never even stood a chance.

Sixteen years young when you snatched the world out of her hands.

She never could recover.

A sub-par job, dozens of meaningless flings since you discarded her.

Chorus

What if what became of her

Is what is to become of me?

What if I'm a failure at life and love?

I'm terrified, can't you see?

Verse

I never even stood a chance.

Nineteen and innocent till my fire drowned in your avalanche.

I never could recover,

Never knew what to make of my life, never could take another lover.

Chorus

What if what became of her

Is what is to become of me?

What if I'm a failure at life and love?

I'm terrified, can't you see?

Bridge

I try to wash away your touch,

I try to break your dark spell.

I'm clinging on to my clutch,

Waiting for the end to this tale.

Chorus

What if what became of her

Is what is to become of me?

What if I'm a failure at life and love?

I'm terrified, can't you see?
