Wang Chung – Betrayal lyrics

(wang chung / peter wolf)

We met as friends of friends while still at school
I was all you ever really knew
When we met it was like a dream
For all I knew we could not fail
But now I know of your betrayal

Living in the older part of town
I worked all hours I could to bring us 'round
Your career was alive for you
But deep inside I watched it fail
And now I know of your betrayal

Your betrayal

If only I could hold you close
But now I know how love grows frail

When I asked if you'd leave me
Or 'bout the boyfriends you'd had
You said you'd stay with me always
And that you'd never be bad
But I would notice a smile
That you would hold within
As if your vanity flirted
With your knowledge of sin
Now you're quiet and cold
Your eyes just stare into space
And if I ask you to talk
You just dissemble your face
And the smile that I hated
Is now a frown of denial
And that's how I know of your unspoken betrayal
Oh, that's how I know of your unspoken betrayal

Now I wish that I'd set you free
But I was terrified that I would fail
And now I know of your betrayal

Your betrayal
If only I could hold you close
But now I know how love grows frail
Oh now I know of your betrayal
Now I know of your betrayal
