Love is a Lie

rose-music.jpg (17982 bytes)Thought I was in love once -
Only for a day.
Just when I thought the time had come,
The feeling went away.
Guess I was just lonely -
Wanted any man.
Guess I'll just be patient -
I'll try to if I can.

(Love is a lie.)

I listen to the poets,
Their stories don't come true.
I used to hope they would,
But I'll have to change my view.
The poets show us paradise
But life's a bitter pain -
Get caught up in their fairy tales
Then reality hits again.

(Love is a lie.)

I've been looking for a gold mine -
Have I passed the silver by?
I've been watching for a sign -
For stars to fall from the sky.
I've been looking for true love -
Have my standards been too high?
I'm standing out here in the desert -
Love has passed me by.

(Love is a lie.)

And as I stand here lonely
I'll try not to cry.

(Love is a lie.)
