  • How'd I wind up here again?
    It's like I'm always getting blood on my hands
    All it takes is one and I'm gone and a thousand 'til the end
    How'd I wind up here again?

    You take me to the edge
    You push me too far
    You watch me slip away
    I'm holding on too hard

    Tell me why!
    Does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me!
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    You take me to the edge
    Push me too far
    Watch me slip away
    Holding on too hard
    Tell me
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me?

    How come nothing ever lasts?
    It goes from good to bad to worse so fast
    All it takes is one and I'm gone and you can't erase the past
    How come nothing ever lasts?

    You take me to the edge
    You push me too far
    You watch me slip away
    I'm holding on too hard

    Tell me why!
    Does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me!
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    You take me to the edge
    Push me too far
    Watch me slip away
    Holding on too hard!
    Tell me
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me?
    (From me?)

    Here I am alone again
    Alone again
    Here I am alone again

    How come nothing ever lasts?
    It goes from good to bad to worse so fast

    Tell me why!
    Does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me!
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    You take me to the edge
    Push me too far
    Watch me slip away
    Holding on too hard!
    Tell me
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    Tell me
    Why does everything that I love get taken away?
    From me? Writer/s: EMMA BUNTON, FRED JERKINS, LASHAWN AMEEN DANIELS, MELANIE BROWN, MELANIE CHISHOLM, MISCHKE J. BUTLER, RODNEY JERKINS, VICTORIA BECKHAM
