I gave you more than you could ask for,

Held out every material possession for you to take,

And yet you still asked for more,

 

I sacrificed everything I adore,

And when you shook your head a second time,

I gave you more than you could ask for.

 

I gave you more than you could ask for,

Holding out my heart for your greedy consumption,

And yet you still walked out the door.

 

I have nothing to give anymore,

You took it all and none is left for the others,

I gave you more than you could ask for.

 

I gave you more than you could ask for,

And now none is left is for the people I hold dear,

Nothing but the memories lying on the floor,

And the feelings left over that I abhor.
