You always wanted a lover
I only wanted a job
I've always worked for a living
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

I come here looking for money, got to have it
And end up living with love
Now you left me with nothing, can't take it
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers
I read you books and talked for hours
Every day, so many drinks
Such pretty flowers, so tell me

What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better but I don't know
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

You always wanted me to be something I wasn't
You always wanted too much
Now I can do what I want to forever
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

At night the people come and go
They talk too fast and walk too slow
Chasing time from hour to hour
I pour the drinks and crush the flowers

What have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better but I don't know
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

How I'm gonna get through?
How I'm gonna get through?
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
I'm gonna get through, baby
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

You never ever left me, baby, think of me
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
Oh, babe
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)

Gonna get through, baby, I'm gonna get
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
Forever
(What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?)
