Was This Real Love?

I thought this was love,
But little did I know,
It wasn’t love,
Not even close.

Why did you?
Why did you do this to me?
You remember that innocent girl,
Well that’s all gone now.

Yeah,
That is all gone.

Yeah,
All gone.
And it was you that took it.

Ohhh
Ohhhh

Why did you?
Why did you do this to me?
You remember that innocent girl,
Well that’s all gone now.

Yeah,
All gone.
And it was you that took it.

Not even close.

Why did you?
Why did you do this to me?

Well that’s all gone now.

Yeah,
All gone.
And it was you that took it.

Now my brain is trying to rewire,
From that twist on love,
’Twas from your frame of mind.

Now I’m trying to start over,
But it isn’t easy you know.

Hard to get thru the sadness,
Even if it was about that badness.

I mean,
Shouldn’t it be easier to move on,
From a bad thing in life.
You know,
But moving on,
Is hard in real life.

In books and movies,
they show people getting back up,
and moving on.
All right away.
But,
You know,
As real as it seems,
That isn’t real life.
Real life takes its time,
Letting it take its true course.

@VM709 @thisEmilyda1 @13stars @MMickey @NarutosimG That is probably my favorite lyric. It really struck home for me. The song is about when I found out when me and my ex-boyfriend were together (and after) wasn't love. It disrupted my life when I found out. We threw words (and other things) like they were sharp knives and we were each others prey. Yeah, not the prettiest time of my life.

I like it but I think you repeat this"Why did you? Why did you do this to me? You remember that innocent girl, Well that’s all gone now. Yeah, That is all gone. Yeah, All gone. And it was you that took it. Ohhh Ohhhh Why did you? Why did you do this to me? You remember that innocent girl, Well that’s all gone now." a bit to much it okay if you want it to stay that way but I think you should change it up every time you say this line over or separate and then in the end put it back togethe... (more »)
