Verse 1

I'll never leave you,

Said the monster with the human mask.

Let my sweet smile last,

That's all I prayed for, that's all I asked.

Pre chorus

And I was deceived,

By the perfect thief,

Who stole away the last of my innocence.

Chorus

How can we ever trust someone with our heart?

When a very thin line divides love from lies,

When the players have perfected their disguise,

When the broken hearts lie on guillotines?

How can I believe in a single thing?

Verse 2

Once beaten, twice shy,

But he knew just how to climb my walls.

I couldn't resist

That smile, those eyes, I was bound to fall.

Pre chorus

And I was deceived,

By the perfect thief,

Who stole away the last of my happiness.

Chorus

How can we ever trust someone with our heart?

When a very thin line divides love from lies,

When the players have perfected their disguise,

When the broken hearts lie on guillotines?

How can I believe in a single thing?

Bridge

When nobody is punished for their deception.

Instead they get applause and a grand reception,

While we bleed and burn.

The one thing I've learnt

Is that you can never trust someone with your heart.

Chorus

How can we ever trust someone with our heart?

When a very thin line divides love from lies,

When the players have perfected their disguise,

When the broken hearts lie on guillotines?

How can I believe in a single thing?
