I hadn't heard this song for years, until it came on the radio this morning. Do you remember it?

It was released in 1997, 15 years ago! Listen to the song and try to complete the gaps with the correct missing words. Before you listen, take a look at the lyrics and see if you can guess what the missing words may be. You may be able to figure out what words are missing by the context of the sentences. 

Coincidentally, all the missing words are words you probably hear every day in your English classes, so you should be able to recognise them easily.
Note: You do not need to listen to the whole song to find the answers.

English Listening Lesson Lyrics

A few _1_ that I need to know
how you could ever hurt me so
I need to know what I've done _2_
and how long it's been going on
Was it that I never paid enough _3_?
Or did I not give enough affection?
Not only will your _4_ keep me sane
but I'll know never to make the same _5_ again
You can tell me to my face or even on the phone
You can write it in a letter, either way, I have to know
Did I never treat you right?
Did I always start the fight?
Either way, I'm going out of my mind
all the answers to my questions
I have to find

My head's spinning
Boy, I'm in a daze
I feel isolated
Don't wanna _6_

I'll take a shower, I will scour
I will rub
To find peace of mind
The happy mind I once owned, yeah

Flexing _7_ runs right through me
The alphabet runs right from A to Zed
_8_, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find

I'm not crazy
I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, no
I'm just _9_
'Cause I heard that this feeling
won't last that long

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to _10_
I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I've Never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right
