LYRICS

Disappointment
Oh you shouldn’t have done
You couldn’t have done
You wouldn’t have done
The things you did there
And we could have been happy
What a piteous thing
A hideous thing
Was tainted by the rest
But it won’t get any harder
And I hope you’ll find your way again
And it won’t get any higher
And it all boils down to what you did

The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)

The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)

In the night, we fight, I fled, you’re right
It was exactly there
It was exactly there
I decided, decided, decided, decide
o-o-o-ooo-oh
And drew you out
In the night, we fight, I fled, you’re right
It was exactly there
It was exactly there
I decided, decided, decided, decided

aaaah
a-a-aaa-ah
a-a-a-aaaah

aaa-aaaaa-aah
a-a-a-aaa-aah
a-a-a-aaaah

But it won’t be any harder
And I hope you’ll find your way again
And it won’t get any higher
But it all boils down to what you did

The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)

The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)

Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)

(tu, tu)

Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)

(tu, tu)

The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)
The-e-e-e-ere (tu, tu)

Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)

(tu, tu)

Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)
Disappointment (tu, tu)

(tu, tu)
(tu, tu)
(tu, tu)
(tu, tu)
(tu, tu)
