You’re a shadow in the moonlight
A whisper in the rain
I wish I could forget you
Wish I’d never heard your name.

I hear your voice so softly
Saying, “I love you”
Can’t forget the way you touched me
The things you used to do.

The power and the passion
The fire within me glowed
The secrets that I told you
No one else will ever know.

The depth of love I gave you
I believed you’d be with me
Forever through my lifetime
I had no reason to believe.

That you’d so easily betray me
That you’d walk out on me
I’ll never know the reasons
I was blind, I didn’t see.

No one had ever looked at me
The way you used to do
I just want to forget that
I ever knew someone like you.

I don’t want to think about you
It makes me feel so sad
It was nothing but a fantasy
Why do I have to feel so bad?

I do believe in karma
But things seem to go your way
You’ve gotten everything you want
You continue to, today.

Thoughts of you are haunting
Will I ever be set free?
I am trapped inside this heartache
Left with just a memory.
