I never saw it coming

Web of Lies

I see it now, very clearly now.

The love you had has flown.

She broke the spell, in her arms you fell.

I am left alone.

I should have seen the way you spoke,

The way you hid from me.

It was for you, it was for me,

And now you’re flying free.

I wish I could say thank you , but no words appear.

How can I say thank you when you disappeared?

I wish I could commend you for shielding me.

There’s nothing to commend except the tears and lies.

I should have seen it coming.

I guess it’s time for me to say goodbye.

What a fitting way to break a heart.

I broke yours, now you broke mine,

And I never saw it coming.

How can it be , this person dear,

This friend so close to me?

He built a web, a web of great detail,

that kept me from coming near.

The door has opened, the line is breaking,

You should have been more careful.

You knew inside it was a matter of time

Before the time passed you by.

I know I should grateful for letting me down easy

But how can I be grateful as I fall to pieces?

I should be open to reason, the reason you did it for me.

But there’s no reason for lies and deceit.

I should have seen it coming.

I guess it’s time for me to say goodbye.

What a fitting way to break a heart.

I broke yours, now you broke mine,

And I never saw it coming.

My best friend trapped me in his web of lies,

And I never saw it coming.
