How was I fooled so completely?
My humiliation is profound and deep
And here I thought I was the love of your life
I guess the joke is on me
Lie after lie you told me
And each one I unquestiongly believed
How foolish was my trust
How did I not see
As hard as you tried to break me
Oh how callous and so cruel
Is that how you treat a woman that loves you
My God what is wrong with you
But there will come a time
When you reap what you sew
And when you come to say you are sorry
My response will be "I told you so."
For the grass that you thought was greener
On the other side
Still needs tending and care
Just like the grass you left to die
So when you realize what you have done
And you will someday wait and see
You'll need a shoulder to cry on
But sweetheart it shant be me
This was a blessing in disguise
A tragedy that set my soul free
Before I even knew I was imprisoned
Now I can jsut be me
Content to love myself
Before I love anyone else
Forgiving as He forgave me
Loving life, full of joy and peace
