Within Temptation: What Have You Done Meaning

Song Released: 2007

What Have You Done Lyrics

Would you mind if I hurt you?
Understand that I need to
Wish that I had other choices
Than to harm the one I love

What have you done now?

I know I'd better stop trying
You know that there's no denying
I won't show mercy on you now

    This is definitely about a relationship that didn't work out or something happened to their relationship that caused major issues. What have you done?? It seems like the singer is angry and they had an "epic" love but it fell apart like many things do.

    Having just freed myself from my 2nd abusive relationship, I get this song! My anger, hurt, and embarrassment of a relationship I put everything into, but went sour, can be overwhelming. I now consider both women poison and I should have seen that in the beginning and not married either of them. That's on me and I take responsibility for those mistakes! I did love them, but they hurt me back. Time to move on. :)

    I think this is about Sharon's "character" who is getting abused by her boyfriend, and her friend is really angry at the boyfriend. But this is also a breakup song, because Sharon is breaking up with her abusive boyfriend.
