You thought you’d figured it out this time
As you held her close, and you told her that you’d put the past behind
And you, whispered in her ear
That you loved her, amongst some other things that you thought she’d like to hear
And whilst memories might fade
How long did you think, you could wear this masquerade
Your heart won’t lie, it will openly admit
But you’ll drink yourself to sleep in an effort to forget about it

Cause you can’t rely on love to ease your pain
You can’t rely on trust to stop shit happening again
What’s been done is done, actions you can’t erase
You’ve spilt the ink, covering this blank white page

She laid you down upon a bed
And you stripped her naked, stripped her free of the doubt inside her head
In that one, perfect, moment of deceit
You were both convinced that neither one held any kind of secret
I know how it feels to be lost amongst friends
To have no sense of direction, no sense of hope, and it feels as if these wounds will never mend
And you hate the thing’s you’ve said
And the way her best friends stare at you, it’s hypocrisy raining overhead

But you can’t rely on love to ease your pain
You can’t rely on trust to stop shit happening again
What’s been done is done, actions you can’t erase
You’ve spilt the ink, covering this blank white page

Confusing times will come and go
And mistakes are sometimes hard to accept
Not much is forgotten, it lingers in the mind
The hardest part of love is regret
