He whispered in my ear
And I lost track of time.
He held me in his arms
And I forgot you are mine.

He looked into my eyes
I gave into romance.
I was swept away so fast
My heart never had a chance.

Often I think back
He didn’t even try
To hide his many faults
Or cover his many lies.

I was blind as a bat
I thought I knew him well
Silent as a cat creeping into my heart
When? I could not tell.

I see the real him now
I know I was wrong
To listen to his melody
And try to sing along.
