  • How, how, how, how, how

    I can't believe what you said to me
    Last night when we were alone
    You threw your arms up
    Baby you gave up, you gave up

    I can't believe how you looked at me
    With your James Dean glossy eyes
    In your tight jeans with your long hair
    And your cigarette stained lies

    Could we fix you if you broke?
    And is your punch line just a joke?

    I'll never talk again
    Oh boy you've left me speechless
    You've left me speechless, so speechless
    And I'll never love again
    Oh boy you've left me speechless
    You've left me speechless, so speechless

    I can't believe how you slurred at me
    With your half wired broken jaw
    You popped my heart seams
    All my bubble dreams, bubble dreams

    I can't believe how you looked at me
    With your Johnnie Walker eyes
    He's gonna get you and after he's through
    There's gonna be no love left to rye

    And I know that it's complicated
    But I'm a loser in love
    So baby raise a glass to mend
    All the broken hearts
    Of all my wrecked up friends

    I'll never talk again
    Oh boy you've left me speechless
    You've left me speechless, so speechless

    I'll never love again
    Oh friend you've left me speechless
    You've left me speechless, so speechless

    How? Ha-ooh-wow? H-ow? Wow
    Ha-ooh-wow? H-ow? Wow

    And after all the drinks and bars that we've been to
    Would you give it all up?
    Could I give it all up for you?

    And after all the boys and the girls that we've been through
    Would you give it all up?
    Could you give it all up?

    If I promised boy to you
    That I'll never talk again
    And I'll never love again
    I'll never write a song
    Won't even sing along
    I'll never love again

    How, how, how so speechless
    You left me speechless, so speechless baby

    Will you ever talk again?
    Oh boy, why you so speechless?
    You've left me speechless, so speechless

    Some men may follow me
    But you choose "death and company"
    Why you so speechless? Oh oh oh

  • Sean from Altoona, WiSounds like a Elton John themed song!!!
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnSuch a beautiful song, Lady Gaga has an amazing voice, chills!
  • Ryan from London (y), United KingdomThis really shows off L-Ga² singing ability! I dont think people knew how well she could sing and the fact that it was written for her Father and gave him the inspiration to get help is just amazing. x
  • Tabitha from Lake Havasu City, AzSo far, this is one of my favorite songs by her. When I heard her perform it at the AMA's, i think the most shocking about it was it was a serious song. Nobody expected it from Lady Gaga. It is a good song though...very profound...
