The Vow of the Unfaithful Lover
I never made any promises
What good would that do anyway?
You never said you'd leave, it's true
Yes, I never said I'd stay.
We are liars, you and I
We lied to the one's we're unfaithful to.
So how can we trust that any vow
That we make to each other will be true?
If it makes any difference for me to say this
After knowing I have lied
To you, to him, out of loyalty
Though to myself I cried
In my secret mind, I've loved you from the start.
That I can say is true.
You've always been formost in my heart
And I'm always thinking of you.
