LYRICS

Sitting in an armchair with my head between my hands
I wouldn’t have to feel like this if you’d only understand
Too many misunderstandings causing such delay
And if it doesn’t work like this, well I’ll try another way

Oh woho if this is the way you wanted it
Oh woho I didn’t understand
Oh woho if this is the way you wanted it
Oh woho I didn’t understand

You know that all I wanted was to be there by your side
And if you didn’t want it, well you shouldn’t have denied
You knew that you were someone special right from the start
But if you treat me badly we’d be better off apart

Oh woho if this is the way you wanted it
Oh woho I didn’t understand
Oh woho if this is the way you wanted it
Oh woho I didn’t understand (understand)

Oh ho-o-o
Oh ho-o-o
Oh ho-o-o
Oh ho-o-o
Ho-o ho-o-o-o ho-o ho-o ho
Ho-o ho-o-o ho-o-o-o
Ho-o ho-o-o ho-o-o-o
