Never felt better
Than I felt with you
Safe and secure
So into you.

But …. it fell apart
When you said we’re through
You told me you loved her
What could I do?

It’s not the first time
That you said …. goodbye
You’ve got a habit
Of telling me lies.

I took a fall
Got pushed off the ledge
Gut punched …. back stabbed
Was left for dead.

What is it about her?
Her hair …. her perfume?
Nothing compares to
The stars and the moon.

A thousand wishes
Could not make you stay
I begged and I pleaded
But …. there was no way.

Even the devil
Gave up on me
No deals to be made
No chance for mercy.

Nights in the dark
The passion …. the bliss
The way that you held me
I can’t forget this.
