Blinded By Love

He used to look after me
He used to pick me up when I was down,
When the rest of the world turned away
He was the only one still around.
He used to treat me so well
He used to bring joy into my life,
He used to care so deeply about me
Everything used to be all right.
We shared so much laughter
We shared all the tears,
We shared so much together
Over all the years.
I never understood why things changed
I thought things were perfect,
But something must have happened
Because things occurred that I’ll never forget.
He slowly started to change
He started to grow so cold,
He never seemed to be there
When I needed someone to hold.
He stayed out all night
And never told me where he’d been,
I’d hear stories about him from friends
About the things they had seen.
Whenever I protested to him
He would shout and leave home,
Then he’d leave me to puzzle
In the dark all on my own.
I’d wonder what happened to the man
That I’d once known before,
What happened to the person
That I used to adore?
I’d swear to myself one thing
That he would never return,
But that’s always a lie right from the start
A lesson that I’ll never learn.
All it’d take is one phone call
One apology from him,
And just like a helpless fool
I’d let him back in.
I kept hoping and praying inside
That my old love would be there,
Waiting outside the house
Telling me that he still cared.
But every time he would remain the same
He’d lie, cheat and tear me apart,
And just as soon as I started trusting him
He’d tear up my tender heart.
But I just cannot leave him
It would tear me apart,
Because for too long now
He’s had hold of my heart.
The memories are still in my head
From when we first met,
Of the man I fell in love with
The man I’ll never forget.
So now, I just spend my time dreaming
Of how life used to be,
Knowing I’ll always be blinded by love
Waiting for my old love to come back to me.
