Lyrics

Even To This Day

Written By: Music & lyrics by Garcia, Cathey, Mangiboyat & Lee

You took my innocence away
And turned my trust into pain.
I can still see your face.

I remember, tell me can you remember
Even to this day, it still haunts me.
Even to this day, don’t you want me?
Even to this day, why you leaving?
Even to this day…..

You try to hide your sins away
And through the years the guilt begins to fade
Not for me all I have is hate

I remember, tell me can you remember
Even to this day, it still haunts me.
Even to this day, don’t you want me?
Even to this day, why you leaving?
Even to this day…..

Do you remember, tell me can you remember
Cause even to this day, it still haunts me.
Even to this day, don’t you want me?
Even to this day…Even to this day…Even to this day…
