I didn’t realise what was happening
Until it was too late
I was just having some fun
Like going out with a mate.
I didn’t mean for it to go so far
But I really couldn’t resist
Our relationship was going so well
I wasn’t expecting this twist.
I didn’t go out with intentions for change
Please believe this as it’s true
Our plans for the future sounded great
I enjoyed coming home to you.
I know I should have turned away the attention
But it took me by surprise
It shouldn’t have had this effect on me
It made me feel alive.
I know I should have told you sooner
In my mind I was being kind
Hoping you get fed up of being ignored
That you would leave me behind
I understand I have broken your trust and heart
With this deceiving game I played
You didn’t say a word or scream or lash out
You were truly shocked by being betrayed.
