You read me a chapter of storybook love
When the night was a blanket around us.
I think we both knew that the dream would dissolve
When the cold light of morning had found us.

You have what you need,
And it isn't from me.
And it hurts, but it's not a surprise.
The sweetest of words in our storybook love
Are the sweetest of storybook lies.

You read me a chapter of storybook love--
My hope overcame my suspicion.
You spoke of ideals, and you made it seem real--
I suppose we both knew it was fiction.

'Cause you have what you need,
And it isn't from me.
And it hurts, but it's not a surprise.
The sweetest of words in our storybook love
Are the sweetest of storybook lies.

You read me a chapter of storybook love--
We spoke of the union that bound us.
Each time we're together, that story seems real--
When we left, those deep waters surround us.

But you have what you need
And it isn't from me.
And it hurts, but I'm not that surprised.
The sweetest of words in our storybook love
Are the sweetest of storybook lies.

'Cause you have what you need,
And it isn't from me.
And it hurts, but it's not a surprise.
The sweetest of words in our storybook love
Are the sweetest of storybook lies.

The sweetest of storybook lies.
