cheeks burning, mind racing.
i couldn't bury this lovely feeling.
a warm touch, i was star struck.
you said you'd give me the world
if i gave you a chance.
i was elated, started sprinting.
next second only i'm limping.
lungs burning, eyes stinging,
you gave me a new
it was rose glasses, blind-sided.
said you want to try something.
smooth talker, hypnotist.
"it's okay baby", i'm spineless.
i didn't want to let you down.
a surprise trip, i've got to come.
"pull it together", i play pretend.
so its black dress, pursed lips,
i'll be the best actress.
now snows falling, burst bubble,
you said she just wanted trouble.
i cried myself to sleep for weeks.
deflated, bent backwards.
still wanted a better reason.
you just had to make it right.
it was one step, plus two
they don't mean a thing to you.
sweet talker, strategist,
i became your little airhead.
deep down, i knew it wasn't right.
head spinning, dirty feeling.
all you did was dream selling.
want you to give us one last try,
promise to be a better guy.
heart aching, there's no changing.
at least just tell me one last lie.
