Yesterday you said
We could have been a team
Us and them - You and me
Why was I surprised
You wished that you were dead
Everything (all because) because of me

You were the sweetest thing I'd tasted
How could I ever want for more
But you didn't understand
You didn't need the things I am
(It could have been so easy to be anything you choose)

And everyday I fantasised
But that was then
This is life
In every way I've paid the price
To be with you
To be despised

Yesterday you said
You'd never felt so high
With anyone, in your whole life
But look at me
Tell me it's a lie
There's no-one farther from your mind
(It's so easy to believe everything's allright)

And there was more than one chance only
There wasn't any more to prove
Did you do it just to spite
Did you care if you were right

And everyday I fantasised
But that was then
This is life
In every way I've paid the price
To be with you
To be despised

Yesterday you said
Everything was fine
Nothing's perfect all the time
As if you could - Show me there's a line
Over which there's nothing good
(It just feels so tasteless when you say love is on our
Side)

And you took more than I ever gave you
I couldn't ever tell a soul
You didn't need me as a friend
You just took me to the end

And everyday I fantasised
But that was then
This is life
In every way I've paid the price
To be with you
To be despised
