[Written in 2002 after discovering that I was in love with a girl who was already engaged]
If I hadn`t been stealing time
from whom it was entitled;
thinking it was free to have,
unaware I had a rival
Maybe if sensations shared
had not been shared with him,
the way we sinned would be no worse
than sleeping with a friend
Days on end, us sleeping in
I made love to your mind;
caressed the skin, delved deep within…
a girl who was not mine
Suspicion could not, hold what would not,
be held despite mistrust
Attraction so hot, questions ask not,
the truth would surely destroy us
Where were you those five days? Your answer comes too late.
You`re thinking up another lie.
There`s nothing to debate. You lied straight to my face.
Say what you say. For good this is goodbye.
