There was something in your eyes

When you told me that you loved me

Something that I couldn't understand

And I wondered how I could tell

Whether or not you were telling the truth

Words can be so carelessly thrown around

That the hopeful get crushed in the end

I don't want to end up like that

Loving a dream that will never come true

That's why I'm afraid of falling for you

Love, in itself, isn't in those three words

That the young girls cling to with open hearts

Nor is it in the eyes, the jokes, the smiles

It's not some feeling that we "just know" is real

Because love is just an illusion, a common fantasy

That I don't think any of us will ever get to feel
