He sold you dreams with promises
That’s how he won your heart
With pretty eyes and ready smiles
He eased your knees apart
Then when he had you in his grip
He held your self-belief
You saw within his easy grin
The sharpness of his teeth

And you promised you would never fall
For such a man as this
Only fools are fooled by whispers
And the softness of a kiss
But history’s persuasive
Much more than you’d concede
And the life you watched your mother live’s
The life you feel you need

But it’s too late
You’re in too deep
You’ve given up too much
You ought to keep
And he will take
All that he needs
You’ll find you’re in a hole
That you can’t leave

And you’ve started to mistrust him
And you watch him all the while
Unwilling to confront him
Case he leaves you with a smile
He’ll tell you what you want to hear
You’ll hear what you desire
You know he knows your every fear
You fear that he’s a liar
