Lyrics

  • There you were beautiful
  • The promise of love was written on your face
  • You led me on with untrue kisses
  • You held me captured in your false embrace
  • Quicker than I could bat an eye
  • Seems you were telling me goodbye
  • Just a minute ago your love was here
  • All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
  • Sweetness was only heartache’s camouflage
  • The love I saw in you was just a mirage
  • You promised that happiness we’ll ever share
  • But all I have are memories of love that was never there
  • We used to meet in romantic places
  • You gave the illusion that your love was real
  • Now all that’s left are lipstick traces
  • From the kisses you only pretended to feel
  • And now our meeting you avoid
  • And so my world you have destroyed
  • Just a minute ago your love was here
  • All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
  • The way you wrecked my life was like sabotage
  • The love I saw in you was just a mirage
  • You brought me up just to throw me down
  • you love me and my dreams shattered all on your ground
  • You only filled me with despair
  • By showing love that wasn’t there
  • Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
  • A green oasis where there’s only sand
  • You lured me into something I should have dodged
  • The love I saw in you was just a mirage
  • To you I gave true love from deep within
  • You made me hungry for your love
  • When it was not deeper than your skin
  • Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
  • A green oasis where there’s only sand
  • You lured me into, into something I should have dodged
  • The love I saw in you was just a mirage
