Verse 1
You said you loved me,
And I got scared,
So I ran away.
You said you’d do anything,
To get me back,
And stay.


I want this to work,
But I don’t know what love is,
So I don’t know what to tell you.
You might be lying,
I can’t trust you now;
Too many bad experiences went through.


Chorus
I don’t know if you will leave me in the future.
You’d desert me just like everyone else.
My heart’s been grilled too many times that I can’t even count it.
Are you lying to me ‘cause I can’t tell.
I don’t want to be hurt again,
That’s just too much pain.
So please tell me the truth.
Do you truly love me?


Verse 2
I search deep down,
Into my heart,
But everything is still blurry.
I try to see through,
All my pain from the past,
But it all keeps comin’ back to me.


I want to trust you,
But I don’t want you to betray me,
So now I’m stuck in the middle.
I want to love you,
But I don’t know if I could commit,
Since my heart’s so little.


(Chorus)


Bridge
My heart feels like,
It’s been thrown in the ocean,
Then eaten by fish.
It’s been digested,
Then glued together,
And finally put back again.


So please, please tell me:
Are you lying?
Are you gonna leave me?
Would you betray me?
Do you truly love me?
Do I truly love you?


The author's comments:
She hasn't felt love in a very long time and she doesn't know if she is able to love or trust anyone again. She doesn't know if she could trust him enough to love him back. She doesn't know if he would ever leave or betray her like everyone else in her life did to her. She doesn't know if he's lying or telling the truth. So the question is, does he truly love her?

These are song lyrics, by the way.

Thanks! I didn't think anyone would actually like that bit. My friends and I came up with it when we imagined ourselves really hurt. Yeah, that's how we have fun.

This is beautiful. It's not just another T. Swift-ish love song. I think it has something more to it. I love that "eaten by fish" bit in the bridge. Really creative. :)
