Lured by you
Caught in your trap
No way to break free
To find my way back.

I should’a known
When you came on to me
That this couldn’t be real
But I couldn’t see.

I was blinded by lust
Overtaken, consumed
Tricked into falling
Falling for you.

Always on cruise
For something better
You had no intentions
Of us staying together.

You take what you want
You watch your prey bleed
You get what you want
Whatever you need.

I learned too late
You weren’t going to stay
You walked out on me
I learned the hard way.
