What's In It For Me lyrics

I know that I'm a fool
To keep on loving you so hopelessly
Someone else is in your heart
So what's in it for me?
Why do I dream of you
When I'm just dreaming of what used to be
There's no future in the past
So what's in it for me?
But I can't help it
I can't seem to break the ties that bind
These ties of love are wound too tight
Around this heart of mine.
I know that it's a sin
To wish my life could end and cease to be
But what's life without your love
What's in it for me?
--- Instrumental ---
But what's life without your love
What's in it for me?...
