She gave it a second chance
Though he ripped her heart clean out of her chest
When he betrayed her through a glance
And a tempting ruse ending with a kiss
She thought it was eternity
The love she had discovered in him
But in this cruel reality, very few things can last forever

Second chances bring greater heartache
This girl came to learn through his blow
But the love she had known wasn't fake
This tragic ending couldn't be real
She had to hold onto the thought
That he would come back to her once more
This ideal vision she had sought
Came crashing down through its fragile frame

They say that time heals all wounds
But then why is her cut growing deeper?
That it's all about the climb
But then why is her hill growing steeper?
She knows that it's best to let go
But she's afraid of the fall
He threw at her a fatal blow
She wants to forget it all and cease to exist

Every night, he was always there
Every morning, he kissed her goodbye
Now she turns to find his side bare
She doesn't know how she will do this
It was becoming much more real
This realization hurt even more
How could something lose its appeal
For him who vowed he was so in love?

They say that time heals all wounds
But then why is her cut growing deeper?
That it's all about the climb
But then why is her hill growing steeper?
She knows that it's best to let go
But she's afraid of the fall
He threw at her a fatal blow
She wants to forget it all and cease to exist
