  • 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
    The 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
    I 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 have 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
    I 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

    To ask for forgiveness
    You're asking too much
    I have sheltered my heart in a place you can't touch
    I 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 Writer/s: Pierre Marchand, Sarah Mclachlan
