What have I [Bb]done?[C]
What have I [D]done?[G]
[Em]Maybe I'm just damaged goods
And [A]baby you're a babe in the woods
And [Em]me I'm just a little lost lamb
But [A]you love me wherever I am
And [Em]maybe I've been caught red handed
Maki[A]ng off like a lucky bandit
This[A] wasn't how I planned it
Verse 2:
Maybe this time I could stay
And let myself get carried away
Maybe this time it's too late
We could make a move or we could wait
Maybe she will understand
And not expect too much from one man
Maybe she can
Or maybe she canít
Chorus 2:
Maybe when I've changed my tune
I'll come out of my solitude
And start to live my life anew
And spend the rest of my days pleasing you
And on the path to righteousness
I'll swept the dust
Whatever it takes to gain your trust
I'll do what [G]I mu[D]st
I'll do what [G]I mu[D]st (I'll do what I must)
I'll do what [G]I mu[D]st (I'll do what I must)
I'll do what [G]I mu[D]st
Maybe I'm just damaged goods
And, baby, you're a babe in the woods
And me, I'm just a little lost lamb
But you love me wherever I am
And maybe I've been caught red handed
Making off like a lucky bandit
And now I walk this planet
[Em]Forever it's a charm, [A]the alternative to love
