It Wasn't Forever
Lys Summers

Edit Dec. 9th, 2003 -- Wow, this is a kicker to look back on. The first in my rather large amount of break up songs, though this is the only one I ever published. Damn, but I was bitter. A few formatting changes and typo correction. Phil... jackass. That's all have to say.

When you told me it was over,
I accepted that, I understood.
It was good while it lasted,
We had our fun,
And it just wasn't meant to be.

But then I hear the real reason,
And I almost couldn't beleive,
That you could play my heart like that,
And just take me for a fool.
You thought it would be a secret,
Like I was just a little game,
But then I found out,
Bet you didn't expect that you would cause me so much pain.

Even if it's not gonna be forever,
You gotta give as much as take,
Give me respect and honesty,
Don't go there --
Don't just play with my heart.

When you were with her,
Did you ever think of me,
Of how you were telling me lies?
All the sweet things that you'd say,
"I want you, I miss you,
You have a piece of my heart.
You're the only one, I'll stay true to you,
Until our time is done?"

I trusted you to be good to me,
Give me love and honestly,
Tell me what you feel inside,
Tell me if we're just not right.

Even if it's not gonna be forever,
You gotta give as much as take,
Give me respect and honesty,
Don't go there --
Don't just play with my heart.

Don't you start with me, boy,
Don't you play with my heart.
