You Put Me Down To Marry Into Pain

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.

I tried to tell you that my heart for you is pure.
I tried to tell you what I had for you was sure.
But,
You had been lured...
To put me down to marry into pain.

What makes you think I have waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
From someone who has been changed.

What makes you think that I've waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
Wet from sorrows soaked in shame.

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you...
But,
What did you do...?
You put me down to marry into pain.
