  • Talk to me, don't lie to me
    Save your breath
    Don't look at me
    Don't smile at me
    Just close your eyes
    I was so impressed by you
    I was running blind
    I would fall for every trick
    Every twist of mind
    Heaven is cold
    Without any soul
    It's hard to believe
    I was so in love with you
    Don't say your prayers
    Don't build your hopes
    Just walk away
    Don't phone me up
    Don't call around
    Don't waste your time
    You were so in awe of me
    You were so divine
    You would do just anything
    To still be mine
    All the things you said to me
    I was so obsessed (don't cry)
    You were always talking, talking
    God I did my best
    Heaven is cold
    Without any soul
    It's hard to believe
    I was so in love with you
