You said that you'd be there,
to catch me when I fall;
all I felt was empty air,
you weren't there at all.
You said you'd lift me up,
whenever I was down;
your leaving was abrupt,
you didn't stick around.
You said you'd be my honey,
through the laughter and the sadness;
but what's happened isn't funny,
now I know this thing called madness.
You said "I'll always love you,"
it was just the other day;
but hell is what you put me through,
and I never had my say.
You said I was your loving lad,
and you were my bonny bride;
but love is not the thing you had,
only arrogance and pride.
You said you'd love me till the end,
but the end, it never came;
you disappeared, around the bend,
as I called, in vain, your name.
