What is this Love

What is this love that I leave behind?
How can I turn from the tales in your eyes?
What is this world where we always pretend
That it's worth it, worth it in the end

What is this life we shared that I just throw away
Is this love that causes so much pain?
What is the promise that I leave behind?
Why can't I just lie beside you the night?

CHORUS: What's going on?
How'd it get so wrong?
What's going on?
How'd it get so wrong?

What is this dream that I'll never find?
What is the prayer that's stealing my mind?
What is this deal that I've made with fate
And now I wonder if I have left it too late

CHORUS: What's going on?
How'd it get so wrong?
What's going on?
How'd it get so wrong?






songwriter: Blue Rodeo

performed by: Blue Rodeo and Sarah McLachlan

date released: 1993 by Blue Rodeo

Anyone who has been through the breakdown of a long term relationship will resonate with this song. The video is powerful in its imagery; its bleak images evoke the depression and hopelessness that lies in the wake for the partners, one leaving and the other left behind.
