Was It Something I Said

Me and Valentina went down to the chapel but the gates were shut
I had my vows in my pocket and a gold plated ring for my honey love
We headed down Tropicana to the corner with the late night restaurant
We sat across from each other when I looked in her eyes there was something gone

Was it something I said or did?
Was it something that I should of kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'd do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moon light
You got me on my knees Valentina this is not like you

I got a job at the Nugget and I saved a thousand dollars for a brand new start
She said "I didn't wanna do it but I did it 'cause I didn't want to break your heart"
The waiter whispered when he said we had to take the conversation to the parking lot
Please baby please Valentina baby you're the only thing I got

Was it something I said or did?
Was it something that I should of kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'd do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moon light
You got me on my knees Valentina this is not like you

I hear church bells ringing in my head and I take them everywhere I go
Valentina met a dealer and I heard they had a baby five months ago

Was it something I said or did?
Was it something that I should of kept hid?
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'd do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moon light
You got me on my knees Valentina don't say it's true
This is not like you
