The Other Side Of You
I used to trust you
Trust you as I did myself
But that was before I met
The other side of you
Now I live in doubt
Wondering if you are telling me lies
Wondering if the truth has ever had a place in your life
Wondering why you thought it so acceptable to deceive me
You say you love me always, this I cannot comprehend
For I could never lie to you, my love
Nor deceive you, or turn my back on you
But I am the one who is now broken
You were the one who didnít care the price
Leaving me with self-doubt
Questioning my own ability to judge, and to be loved
You were a thief and my innocence your prize
And you did this, why?
Your answers are weak and without remorse
No excuse heals the torn pieces of my heart
No words can put glue on my shattered dreams
Why would you wish to bring me such sadness?
Why would you offer me a future you had no intention of delivering?
Why would you teach me to breathe only to take the air from me?
Why would you accept my soul only to steal away my very essence?
I have been a fool
And you, a mean and evil cad
You set out on a path of destruction
I greeted you with a noble heart
I only wish I had known
Before I fell in love with you
All your darkest secrets, that your words were untrue
And the other side of you
