The kisses that I steal from you
Are really meant for her.
I nuzzle up to you for love; do I feel your cool disdain?
Like a thief I take your kisses that now belong to her.
The kisses that belong to her
I thought once belonged to me.
How I wish I could believe
They still belonged to me.
I turn away, I cannot stay,
The pendulum of life has swung the other way.
Now not my time, now not my day,
You have gone another way.
The view past you I cannot see;
The future is a blank to me.
I thrust the thought of you away,
I will take the challenge of today.
I smile through tears I shed,
I will kill the maggots of envy in my head.
I dream of another in my mind,
Another lover now I find
Who will be like you, kind.
