A semi-famous person once asked: Who is the culprit? Who is the victim? Another said: "Betrayal takes two". With all that in mind, here's another of LD's examinations in relationship dynamics...this time, in G major – CRX


Our life was almost like a song
Back when you wanted me
I thought that nothing could go wrong
Back when you wanted me
But then when everything turned sour
There was nothing left to fill the endless hours
Wthout you —
I almost felt like I belonged
Back when you wanted me

But you never meant those words you said
Back when you wanted me
Dope, love and danger filled our heads
Back when you wanted me
You said we were above the law
Though you gave me more than sufficient cause
To doubt you —
Like every Genet novel I never read
Back when you wanted me

So maybe you were just a fraud
There was something twisted, a little flawed
About you —
But just for a moment I stopped wishing I were dead
Back when you wanted me
Back when you wanted me
Back when you wanted me
Back when you wanted me, etc.
