Oh, it’s true, you’re right
there’s no point in carrying on
the worst is yet to come
we’re not fooling anyone
and, after years of lies
that only delude myself,
oh, honestly, nothing helps
--- not that you ever tried to
in the years of living in cheap rented rooms
with me moaning from under you,
oh, I never felt I could turn to you
and, after months of whispers in telephone booths,
I discovered the terrible truth.
oh, I never should have trusted you
and, here, when it’s finally falling apart
I see you for who you are
oh, but did it mean anything? At any time?
well, I felt for you.
and I swear, when you touched me, I thought it was real!
oh, I believed it was real
what a fool I’ve been
and, after a few years with you,
will she look as good as I do?
well, if you change your mind,
you know where to reach me
I’ll be waiting
