You have a beautiful smile, thats what you said.

I laughed it off as just pretend.

A month then passed and you were there,

Right beside me combing my hair.

Behind my ear in a loving way,

I thought forever you would stay.

6 months then passed and our love was deep,

I didnt realize it was growing weak.

2 months then passed then you began to lie.

All I could do was close my eyes and cry.

3 months then passed and you started cheat,

My broken heart stopped its beat.

I gave you a chance to be redeemed,

I guess It was something I just dreamed.

A month then passed and you proposed,

I said yes and took a toast.

2 days then passed and you lied to me and your mother,

so you could go lay bare with another.

3 days have passed and I feel so alone,

I feel so cold down to the bone.

Forever this betrayal will live,

There is nothing I wouldn't give.

To take this pain away...
