Loving lying enemy
I have seen your face before
Never thought again I'd see
Didn't want to anymore

I remember your loving eyes
And the moonlit kiss
The evening lullabies I will truly miss
Through the years we had it all
Midnight whispers, the midday calls
This house of cards, it had to fall

And you ask for forgiveness
You're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
Don't believe when you tell me your love is real
'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy
If you have to hurt to feel

Every time I see you
I can't help but look away
All along I had believed everything you'd say
When I look now I know I've seen your face before
Don't want your deceiving smile
Standing at my door
And I don't care what people say
I'm ready now to face this day
'Cause I'd lost you along the way

And you ask for forgiveness
You're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
Don't believe when you tell me your love is real
'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy
If you have to hurt to feel

'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy
If you have to hurt

And you ask for forgiveness
You're asking too much
I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
Don't believe when you tell me your love is real
'Cause you don't know much about heaven boy
If you have to hurt to feel

    It is portraying a love that she thought was so true but turned out to be nothing but a wolf in disguse... The pain she feels is to much to bear... When you love someone so much but you know that you can't trust them anymore. That has to be one of the worst pains we as human beings will ever feel in life... But as she feels all this agony and pain, she sees a great light at the end of the tunnel.. She runs towards it. Restoring a flame in her that she thought was lost... Eventually we all get back up and move on. Thank god. Lol
