You don’t think that I tried for you?
I went into disguise for you.
So, of course, almost no one knew.

You don’t think there was payment due?
I blew up in the sky for you.
Anyone who saw it knew.

But did you, didn’t you ever wonder,
Maybe if you were under your own spell?

[Repeat: x2]
Thinking it was all she wrote,

Thinking it was all the words ever written.

[Repeat: x2]
So, of course, almost no one knew
