How Could It Come To This

Credits

Ad lib over intro- Why did you leave me,
My baby (baby, baby, baby)

Verse- Surprised me, could not believe the things I just hear
The girl that I love, the closest to my heart,
For the only one whom I care
Said she needs some space and time (time)
Seems she wants to leave me behind

Lift- How can this be when she wanted to marry me
And now she plans to walk away from me

Chorus- How could it come to this
Guess my ignorance was bliss
How could it come to this
Where were the signs that I missed

Release- Must have been one or two
But I was blind in love with you
How could it come to this
But I was blind to see

Verse- The hardest thing in my life was letting you go
But how can I hold on if you don’t want me too
I heard your explanation, wanting this separation
Much as you say that you love me
How can you do this to me

Repeat Chorus and Release

Musical interlude/guitar ride
Repeat First Verse and Lift
Repeat Chorus and Release w/o resolve

Repeat Release and ad lib tag out to fade
