For a brief span of time i actually believed that you love me.
For a brief span of time, my heart skipped a beet.
But wrongfully that was not what it was
and yet again a little piece inside me died.
I feel all alone now
A vacant space below.
You made me wait, you came,
but were never here to stay.
Sweet talking, you had made your way.
It’s the hundredth time my heart breaks
and nothing remains
Its hopeless, i feel to fall in love again
when you have to leave to never return again
No hope anywhere.
Other aspects are also pushing over me
Bending me down low beneath.
Oh, its so hard to stay strong
I just want to sit down n weep
But tears don’t seem to creep,
through the eyelids of my dream
Helpless to not give up
I don’t scream. Instead
Try to work out things,
Better than what they seem.
