staring deep into his eyes
he can see through all my lies

in all my years of youth
I have hidden the truth

so far I've deceived them all
he’s the one who will not fall

no matter how hard I try
he will not believe the lie

he’s not that bad a catch
I've finally met my match

his eyes pierce into my soul
I need him to make me whole

but my love he will not take
I fear that my heart will break

I just wish that he could see
we are meant to be

as I stare into his eyes
I speak the truth, no more lies
