Liars

Why should I trust you
How do I know what you say it true
If I give you my heart
Will you promise not to rip it apart
I have been hurt so many times and in so many ways
Now you have my heart, in your hands it lays
Remember you can't break a promise
So I'll tell you this
One chance you'll get
This you best not forget
For if you ever hurt me like so many have before in the past
I promise you this, your life it will not last
I'm tired of always crying
For those that all there good at is lying
So I tell you now
I want take it, no way no how

Pardon me while I take a moment to uncringe. Eek, and I have to hop a plane in the morning. Glad you got off the bus safely and were able to tingle our spines with your artistry.
