I could have stood to watch you walk away And put it down to your uncertain ways Or maybe baby you've had a change of heart Maybe wanna make a brand new start Crazy though what I say may seem I could have learned to mend these broken dreams You could have pushed I would have gently fell I could have played the graceful one so well What's that you say You were gonna leave me anyway Any fool can see, see what you've done to me When your love turns to lies
The actor played the part of sweet desire And tiptoed out upon the highest wire The truth to tell upon a rope too thin And so the fall of treachery begins But oh to see the starlet's smiling face So eagerly awaits to take the place I tried to fall in a clean and graceful way You could have said I would have given way
And I see him smile the way that I smiled And I hear him laugh the way that I did But I hear him screaming and I hear him cry And I see him falling When your love turns to lies
What's that you say You were gonna leave me anyway Any fool can see, see what you've done to me When your love turns to lies...
