deceiver

how can i prove to you that my heart is true?
i cannot, because i'm a fool, i walked away from you
i never learned to say when i was afraid and now i am ashamed
i wish i hadn't let you down

a fleeting light passed the air and distracted me
forgot who i am, where i was, who i'm supposed to be
i followed a lie into the woods, promises dark with sweet intent
i just hope its not too late to get back

i dare not beg and plead as you sit next to me
all i love is you
can you still love me too?

here i stand, blood on my hands, bare in front of you
believe me when i say i wish with all my heart it wasn't true
you are my soul
with you alone i want to grow old with
i'll be here if you want me
i will fight if you let me
i'll be here if you want me
i will fight
