I overstepped a boundary the day I trusted you
Believing in the fairytale no other love will do
Walking down a broken road strewn with forget-me-nots
The poppy tea that I'd consumed was strong and boiling hot
I'd burnt my tongue and couldn't speak my eyes refused to see
Yet these ears took inside what you'd infused in me
Hour after endless hour the running of the sands
Merged within my being until those distant lands
Became my own and so did you or was it me
Which one is true what could I do
I found that I had somehow become so very lost
And knew that I had paid an extraordinary cost
By losing myself and losing tender youth
Wasting precious time and neglecting my own truth
My darling you are cunning but you never will be wise
You had been very stunning but love wore a disguise
Now that I can see you for who you truly are
I'm running through the forest and far cannot be far
