Once again you tried to show me
What my eyes refused to see
In the lines between the painful scene we're in
With the silence falling coldly
On a world of make-believe
And the ending that I still don't understand

Chorus:
It's a bad love story
That I've had to learn by heart
'Cause I've lived these lines so many times before
And it's a shame the way the same old ending
Still tears me apart
Where the lady still don't love me anymore

I can see the truth before me
Like a mirror on the wall
With a crack or two for every fool I've been
And i see the lady waiting
For her count-down curtain call
And it's looking like the place that I came in

Chorus:
It's a bad love story
That I've had to learn by heart
'Cause I've lived these lines so many times before
And it's a shame the way the same old ending
Still tears me apart
Where the lady still don't love me anymore
