Your Words
Made Me Believe,
I Thought You Were
My Hero
I Thought You Were
My One And Only

Your Words
Made Me Believe
In You
In Love
In Us

Your Words
Took Me Into Another World,
Into A Future
That Wasn’t A Fantasy,
Where We Would Be
Together Forever

You Made Me
Believe In Your Words,
I Trusted You
I Believed In You

I Was Happy,
I Gave You My Heart,
I Gave You All I Had To Give,
I Dreamed Of Our Future
And Held Onto Your Words
Like A Lifeline

But, Too Soon I Found
Your Words Were Not True
Just Distorted Reflections
Of You In A Circus Mirror

You Weren’t Who You Said You Were,
You Used Your Words
To Deceive Me,
How Could You Do That To Me?

You Disappeared
Like A Thief In The Night
Leaving Me With
Nothing More Than
Heartaches And Pain

And Moments
And Memories
Spinning Around In My Head
Like Old Time Records

But Time Has Done
It’s Healing,
And My Heart
Has Finally Mended

And Locked
Those Memories Away,
Deep In My Heart
Never To Be Remembered Again|

I Guard My Heart
Closer Now,
After Letting Go
And Moving On

I Watch
For Those Who Use
Words That Are
