A scoundrel, a thief
Should’a known from the start
That you’d be the one
To walk off with my heart.

I fell from the ledge
While in free fall
Only seconds to think
Before, hitting the wall.

The lies and the stories
That you told to me
Convincingly charming
I chose to believe.

Would have done anything
That you told me to do
Obsessed, overtaken
So in love with you.

That boyish grin
That handsome face
You won me over
No time to waste.

The shame and remorse
I feel to this day
Will haunt me forever
It’s here to stay.

So foolish, so innocent
So hard to believe
Never thought you would go
Never thought you would leave.
