Better watch yourself
he’s just playing with you
saying all those words you want to hear
none of them true.
Holy roller, business owner, multimillionaire –
you’ve been on the road of heartbreak
he’s the answer to your prayer.
Philanthropist, romanticist, sex god love affair
he’s everything a man can be
now you’re tangled in his lair.
Then that sickly, nagging feeling:
is he really who he seems?
Is he just an online fantasy
or the answer to your dreams?
Time will tell and things will show
he’s played this game before –
with her and her and her and her
and everyone you know.
Disappointment and resentment;
feelings you know well
still it doesn’t seem to matter
your guard’s a fragile shell.
Letting go and moving on; it isn’t very hard –
the disillusioned disenchantment of a heart already scarred.
Sometimes you still wonder just who he really is
if that even was his name
but if he’s everything he said he was
he wouldn’t play this game.
