' I Lied...'


I was looking for love,
a second chance of love...
where I can be myself,
where I can devour life itself...

I have been seeking for love,
I have been waiting for my love...
wondering where he's going to appear,
wondering when he's going to come here...

And then...I found love!
for my love have finally found me...
I was so happy, I was in glee!
I felt that I was free!

'It was heaven in a glen, a life that I was always dream of with my Man...'

My soul has been freed!
My heart has been healed!
My life has been revived,
for my love has finally arrived!

I was so in love
I felt I was alive
Oh it was love! The love of my life!
For it was so strong, so full of life!

I thought it was for long
but I was totally wrong
for thinking he will finally be mine
for hoping we can live as one in time

Yes! I did find love
and yet I lost my love!
For his love is pure and alive,
and mine was not.
for it was tainted and defiled!

I failed and it was graved
I crumbled on my knees and wailed
I cried till my eyes were dried
and yet, I lied and said I'm alive
though, deep inside I know I have died

'And yet, I am willing to live and survive...'

But then
I lied, I lied, I lied
I love him with all my life.
I love him with all my heart
'I will love him until my dying breath of Life...'

    Golden cavery of ruined shelter made a vocabulary of pain of love
    and mine was not.
    for it was tainted and defiled!

    I failed and it was graved
    I crumbled on my knees and wailed
    I cried till my eyes were dried
    and yet, I lied and said I'm alive
    though, deep inside I know I have died

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
