Once, You Loved Me
You said that you loved me
Was that nothing but a lie
As you stole something from me
Now I wonder will I survive.
I wanted to love you forever
And give you all plus much more
But you didn’t want us together
Not for today, or even the day before.
I thought that we would be always
For better or worse until the end
It was love and life and not a phase
As to each other our love we’d send.
I gave you my soul then my heart
And also everything that I did own
And from it all I happily did part
Because as one, we would be known.
I gave you my life so we could live
You became my soul and my destiny
And all that I had, to you I did give
Because you once said; you loved me.
