Etched deep into my heart between all the lies.
I was blind, I stood by you, helpless
In the hope, you would see how I was selfless.
The day never came, you never realized
The worth, the value of a person so prized.
Away from me, you ran and ran
Straight into the arms of that other man.
I clinched my fists, contorted with rage
You left me behind, still caught up in his gaze.
I walked away; you had failed, and not I
Between all the pain, I only wanted to know why-oh-why.
Like a fish, I drank night and day
There was still a lot that I wanted to say.
One fine morning, I let it all behind
A new beginning, a new hope in my mind.
And then, around came she, with a mesmerizing smile
I realized, your betrayal had only made the wait worthwhile.
She loved me, and I wanted to love her back
But thanks to you, I had lost the knack!
