Forgotten Lover

You should recognize
that a lover here lies
he says he wasn`t killed
that`s the truth he denies
saying love didn`t kill me
to himself he lies
while covered with mud
like a river he cries
Eaten up inside his soul
as u went with other guys
said coughing all the dust
our love will never rise
after u sold your love
to the first who buys
i hope as u realize
that true love with me dies
you will memorize
that look on my eyes
when you cheated on me
and when no body cared
that me here lies

    When the love fades away
    and promises are broken
    Don't trap yourself in dismay
    and keep yourself from heaven
    What done is done, what gone is gone
    Wipe off the tears, time will heal your wound....
