When I met you on the boardwalk that night
You were overdressed, melodramatic
Looked into my eyes
Sold me things along the lines of passion, romance, ecstasy
I ate it up like halloween treats
She promised she'd always be there for me
Always be there for me... to listen, just listen
Well nothing lasts forever, well nothing can ever last
No hand to hold you, no arms to enfold you
So much for the past, so much for our happy ending
So much for make better, so much for our time together
What a lonely way to die
Now she plays as if to act like my good friend
Cleverly leading, cleverly breathing but I see right through That empty smile, her inner workings: lonesome, bitter pleas
Jealously pursue what has but almost killed me
Though beautiful, so beautiful
What a lonely way to die, what a lonely way to...
Well nothing lasts forever. Well nothing can ever last
No hand to hold you. No arms to enfold you
I won't go, I can't seem, to believe, she's gone again
