1. I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home, and I've been facing
this alone for much too long
I feel like no one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind,
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong.
R: Too much love will kill you, if you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover, and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster, 'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you, every time.
2. I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine, now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it, every way I go I have to lose.
R1: Too much love will kill you, just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you, make you plead and scream and
And the pain will make you crazy. You're the victim of your crimes
Too much love, will kill you, every time.
R2: Too much love will kill you, it'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you, and you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul, but here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end...
