She’s got a beautiful smile
She’s done her hair up nicely
She goes to see a man; she wants to feel real good...
But it’s not me, it’s not me
She didn’t even tell me why; maybe I’ll never know
I didn’t want to believe my eyes, oh no
She hurt me in my deepest part,
She stabbed me through my heart...

Is it soft where you lay your head?
I hope it’s warm in his bed
Then maybe you’ll think it was worth it,
That maybe I deserved it
How else could you be so cold?
You stabbed me through my soul
I loved you like no other,
It’s killing me like murder...

She doesn’t try to explain
Because there’s nothing she can say
Remember all the promises we made?
All the love we made
How could you go and throw it all away?
I gave you all I had to give!
Weren’t it good enough for you?
I’m fighting so hard to live
It’s like the whole world’s not true
You stopped at nothing to get your thrill
I never thought you’d kill


You put a gun up to my head, and then you blew it all away!
Those 3 years we spent together, was it just a game to play?
To betray...
Now I’m left to drown here in my tears,
There’s only me in sorrow here
I can’t bear the memories,
Knowing it’s only fantasy
I hope one day you’ll hurt the same
So you can feel the pain I feel
I wish I’d known that love could kill...
