9 Times Out Of 10
It was fate that brought us together,
We were in love so very much,
You said you'd always be there for me,
With your tender loving touch.
I thought our love was forever,
But every now and then,
You only really loved me,
Nine times out of ten.
I couldn't help but notice,
The way you looked at her,
You said you'd always be faithful,
But I guess you never were.
I wished that you hadn't left,
Because it hurt me so to see,
All your love going to a girl,
And the girl not being me.
I guess I should have realised,
All the lies you said,
And then I would have saved myself,
From all the tears I shed.
In the evening as the world turns grey,
My sadness comes, then fades away,
I'm reminded of what was said to me,
But my love for him has set me free.
It washed my hurt, my pain, my fear,
He took it all and left me here.
I look up at the first star I see,
Which reminds me of his love for me.
I gave him my life so for now I have nothing.
But I stay alive for I will always know,
There is a place in heaven for my soul.
