There's another world to him

One that he hoped I'd never see

The secrets in his life

That he thought he could hide

I must have been blind to not have seen

He held me close

Said he'd never let go

There was something in me that wanted him to be the one

He tried so hard to never let me down

But the fantasy came crashing down around me

When I found out I wasn't the only one

Back then I thought he'd always be mine

And I would've given up so much to make it happen

But now I see he was never worth it

And I'm glad it never went farther than it did

He held me close

Said he'd never let go

There was something in me that wanted him to be the one

He tried so hard to never let me down

But the fantasy came crashing down around me

When I found out I wasn't the only one

I told him nearly everything

Let him get closer than most others

But still I'm glad he didn't get closer than he did

Because maybe then it wouldn't have been as easy to step back

And see this for what it is

He held me close

Said he'd never let go

There was something in me that wanted him to be the one

He tried so hard to never let me down

But the fantasy came crashing down around me

When I found out I wasn't the only one
