we used to dance like it was going out of style
when you loved me for a while
and I remember every word you ever said, every kiss
we used to sing all the oldest songs we knew
but the words were never true for you
was it all a game of solitaire played in the dark?

all the sweetest things you said and I believed
were summer lies
hanging in the willow trees like the dead
were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again

I whispered too, but the things I said were true
and I gave up my whole world for you
I gave you all the best years of my life
and half the worst
and now you're gone
I pine and wane, pale and wan
never knowing when it's dawn
curtains drawn, hiding in my room
wasting away, cutting myself...
