What did I ever do to hurt and make you feel this way?
What did I ever do to hurt and make you cry all night?
Time goes by, oh so very fast, so let’s make sure to make this last, tonight
And spin me like a wagon wheel, but girl make sure I feel myself within the lights

Within the lights
Within the lights

I have lost myself on these streets
Detroit and Toronto and Queens
I need you please
Until you left me out alone
Listen to my screams

What did I ever do to hurt you and make you feel this way?
What did I ever do to hurt you and make you cry all night?

Within the lights
Within the lights
Within the lights
Within the lights

Let me see you walk those streets
For all the lies, misery and cheats
I wanted to hold you
Hold me like you love me, cuz’ I’m feeling all alone..

What did I ever do to hurt you and make you feel this way?
What did I ever do to hurt you and make you cry all night?

Within the lights
Within the lights
Within the lights
Within the lights

What did I ever do to hurt you?
What did I ever do to hurt you?
And what did I ever do to hurt you?
And what did I ever do?

And what did I ever do to hurt you?
And what did I ever do to hurt you?
What did I ever do to hurt you?
What did I ever do to hurt you?

What did I ever do to hurt you and make you feel this was?
Within the lights I run
