You say you stand by your man
Tell me something, I don't understand
You said you loved me and that's a fact
And then you left me, said you felt trapped

Well some things you can't explain away
But my heartache's in me till this day

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

All the times, when we were close
I'll remember these things the most
I see all my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you 'round

So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there is only one thing that I can't say

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me?
No, not at all

Now I got a job but it don't pay
I need new clothes, I need somewhere to stay
But without all of these things I can do
But without your love, I won't make it through

But you don't understand my point of view
I suppose there's nothing I can do

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You didn't stand by me
No, not at all
You didn't stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me?
Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way
Did you stand by me?
No, not at all
Did you stand by me?
No way
