"What Have I Done Wrong" lyrics - MARIANNE FAITHFULL

"What Have I Done Wrong"

What have I done wrong?

It seems I've hurt you once again,
I try so hard but all in vain.
Tears in your eyes you can't disguise,
But please forgive me if you can.
What have I done wrong?

I hate to make you suffer so,
I'm not a child and I should know
Where laughing ends and tears begin

And I must seem so cruel to you.

Come, let me kiss your tender lips
And you will see our love can be.
What have I done wrong?

You turn away when I am here
And yet I know you need not fear.
If I had time to ease your mind
I'd let you know how much I care.
What have I done wrong?
