We used to dance like it was going out of style
When you loved me for a while
And I remember every word you ever said; every kiss
We used to sing all the oldest songs we knew
But the words were never true for you
Or was it all a game of solitaire played in the dark?
(C): All the sweetest things you said and I believed were summer lies
Hanging in the willow trees like the dead were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again.
I whispered too but the things I said were true
And I gave up my whole world for you
I gave you all the best years of my life
And half the worst and now you're gone
I pine and wane, pale and wan, never knowing
When it's dawn, curtains drawn, hiding in my room,
Wasting away, cutting myself. (C)
