i should have Listened

Please tell me if it's true Is it possible that you Have lied to me again With no reason in the end Left me broken hearted Achieving what you wanted Is this the way you play? The girls that come your way? chrous I should have listened to my Mother, My sister and my brother When they said I would be stuck With a man I could not trust I know that life's not fair There are times when we must bear That life is not for me I'd better if I'm free chrous I should have listened to my mother, My sister and my brother When they said I would be stuck With a man I could not trust Sometimes the answer is where You least expect to find it My family was always there I just didn't realize it chrous I should have listened to my Mother, My sister and my brother When they said I would be stuck With a man I could not trust

Betrayal is such a huge deal. Not so much that they want someone else but the betrayal of your feelings freely given and the trust based on returned information. One feels stupid and hurt when it is the betrayer who has no honour, no robustness of character and never really loved us. You can only know if it has happened to you. Loved this one. Kind regards, Ian
