CAMERA SHY

Never thought for just a minute
You had plans to make me cry
You wanted to embarrass me
Tell me, …… tell me why.

Photos taken in the dark of night
Were meant for your eyes only
Never dreamed you’d make a fool of me
My whole family will disown me.

Mistakes unfold with consequence
Just didn’t think it through
Believed you when you told me twice
I’ll take good care of you.

No hope to save my dignity
Not now … not after this
There for all the world to see
Why didn’t I resist?

Believed you when you promised me
You’d be the only one
Who knew you’d break a solemn vow?
You did it just for fun.

I hear you laugh…. the sly remarks
Whenever I walk by
Makes me want to turn and run
Just makes me want to cry.

Wish I could go back in time
Should’a never trusted you
Thought that you were mine alone
Now, nothing I can do.
