Lyrics verse 1:
YOU SWORE TO ME
YOU WERE MY ONE
AND ONLY,
THOUGH DEEP INSIDE
I KNEW IT WASN'T TRUE,
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE,
MY DAYS ARE COLD
AND LONELY,
I JUST CAN'T SEEM
TO WANT SOMEBODY NEW.

Chorus 1:
AS IF I DIDN'T KNOW
THAT YOU WERE LYING,
AND THAT YOUR GAME
OF LOVE
WOULD CAUSE ME WOE.
IN SPITE
OF ALL THE TIMES
YOU LEFT ME CRYING,
I PLAYED YOUR GAME
AS IF I DIDN'T KNOW.

verse 2:
THEY WARNED ME
THAT SOMEDAY
I'D LEARN A LESSON,
AND THAT A BROKEN HEART
WOULD BE THE COST,
BELIEVE ME
WHEN I SAY
THAT I'M CONFESSIN',
I'M GLAD I LOVED YOU
EVEN THOUGH I LOST.

Chorus 2:
AS IF I DIDN'T KNOW
SOMEDAY YOU'D HURT ME,
AS IF I COULDN'T TELL
YOU'D GRIEVE ME SO.
AND EVEN THOUGH
IT'S TRUE
YOU DID DESERT ME,
I STILL LOVE YOU
AS IF I DIDN'T KNOW.

Lyrics verse 1:
THE LOVELIGHT'S GONE
FROM YOUR EYES,
YOU'RE TELLING ME
LITTLE WHITE LIES,
IT SEEMS
YOU'RE NOT AT HOME
EACH TIME I CALL.
I GUESS
THAT I'D BE A FOOL
NOT TO KNOW
YOUR HEART'S GROWN COOL
I SEE
THE WRITING ON THE WALL.

Chorus:
IT'S NOT TOO HARD
TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES,
DEAR,
SO PLAIN TO SEE
LOVE DIDN'T CONQUER ALL.
IT'S NOT TOO HARD
TO RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS,
DEAR
I SEE
THE WRITING ON THE WALL.

verse 2:
FRIENDS SAY
THIS WON'T BE THE END,
YOU'LL WANT MY LOVE AGAIN,
BUT MY HEART KNOWS BETTER
THAN THEM ALL.
THIS TIME
I FEEL IT'S GOODBYE,
EXCUSE ME IF I CRY
BUT I SEE
THE WRITING ON THE WALL.

Chorus:
IT'S NOT TOO HARD
TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES,
DEAR,
SO PLAIN TO SEE
LOVE DIDN'T CONQUER ALL.
IT'S NOT TOO HARD
TO RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS,
DEAR
I SEE
THE WRITING ON THE WALL.
