LYRICS

Terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying
It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying insi-i-i-ide, to see her dying

Won’t you come o-out and play the games we played
Won’t you speak o-out and say the things you’d say
The lady loved her go-o-o-o-o-old, the lady lost her so-o-o-oul

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying
It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying insi-i-i-ide, to see her dying

Do you remember the things we used to do
Do you remember the way it was for you
The lady loved her go-o-o-o-o-old, the lady lost her so-o-o-oul

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying
It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying insi-i-i-ide, to see her dy…

La-a, la-a, la-a-a-a-a
La-a, la-a (ya-a-a-a-a-a)

NOTES

  • “Dying Inside” was written for previous albums but was never used: “The first is ‘Dying Inside’ which was written on the tour for No Need To Argue in 1994. We tried recording it on the TTFD session and on the BTH session but we never quite captured it until now.” (Fergal, cranberries.ie, October 30th, 2001)
