What Did You Do To My Life?

Album: Neil Young (1969)
  • When we were living together
    I thought that I knew you would stay
    Still when you left me
    I tried to pretend we could make it some way

    I don't care if all of the mountains
    Turn to dust in the air
    (What did you do to my life?)
    It isn't fair that I should
    Wake up at dawn
    And not find you there
    (What did you do to my life?)

    It's hard enough losing
    Without the confusion of knowing I tried
    But you've made your mind up
    That I'll be alone now, there's nothing to hide

    I don't care if all of the mountains
    Turn to dust in the air
    (What did you do to my life?)
    It isn't fair
    That I should wake up at dawn
    And not find you there
    (What did you do to my life?)

    I don't care if all of the mountains
    Turn to dust in the air
    (What did you do to my life?)
    It isn't fair
    That I should wake up at dawn
    And not find you there
    (What did you do to my life?)

    I don't care if all of the mountains
    Turn to dust in the air
    (What did you do to my life?)
    It isn't fair
    That I should wake up at dawn
    And not find you there
    (What did you do to my life?) Writer/s: Neil Young
