Take the You Out of Us
Alice C. Bateman
What do the Fates have in store for me next?
They change my whole life on any pretext
They give me a man and then take him away
When will they give me a man who will stay?
Take the you out of us and the me out of we
Soon we will find out how sad we can be
The dreams and the mem'ries that we both once shared
Was it just an illusion, thinking you cared?
Now you're gone for good and I'm left all alone
My heart full of love has been turned to a stone
We had something so strong, or at least I thought so
I guess I was wrong, or else why did you go?
I'll get over you, I have to, or else my soul will die
It's hard for me to realise that your love was a lie
If you had really loved me I would not be in this state
Even after what you've done, my love won't turn to hate
That doesn't mean I'll take you back, my heart has had enough
But I wonder, yes I wonder, when the Fates will send true love
Oh I wonder, yes I wonder, when the Fates will send true love
I need a man who wants to do the things I want to do
A man who can erase the hurt that was brought on by you
A man who wants my children, and will help me care for them
Am I asking for too much, from the world of men?
