When I married Julie she was just seventeen
Pretty as the answer to any man's dream

From the start I gave Julie all the love that I've had
Though everyone told me that Julie was bad
Julie liked parties and clothes that fit tight
Drinking and dancin' around late at night
She was everything evil with the face of a child
But I sat home and waited while my Julie went wild
I had built me an empire with my own two hands
With the money and power to break any man
But with all my possessions power and gold Julie was one thing I couldn't control
I gave Julie all my money could buy begged her to love me but she wouldn't try
She'd only laugh then walk out the door
Each time she'd hurt me made me love her more

Now I'm locked in this room they say I'm insane
And I guess that I'll never see my Julie again
I'm a man with a heart and a tormented soul
And the mind that Julie drove out of control
