She wanted to sing me a ballad.
Looked to me, said she had fallen in love.
Told me that I made her life valid.
I had no words, so I just gave her a hug.
In a pallid world, she was my sun,
but I was a fool and never saw the smoking gun.
She knew not love and poisoned my heart
with her words as she was lying from the start.
