lyrics

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How can it be that the things you said were not true?

Estes Park in ‘93
I saw your deep brown eyes under the willow tree
And I calmed my nerve with the cool ice air
And I woke up at eight to brush my long blonde hair

I see your face
And I see you stare at the other girls
And I know it’s fair
But you took my hand in the concert hall
And my world turned and you said, “I swear I’ll call”

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?

Back at home in my bed so tight
We talked on the phone in the dead of night
But you were miles past in your province far
And we whispered words and wished on stars

You sent a tape, “This is how I sing”
You said, “If I knew you then, it be in a different key”
So I closed my eyes and said my prayers
That you were real and you were fair

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?

I caught you in lies; I caught you in lies
And I tore the songs that didn’t belong to you
And I cut my hair, one last strand will do
And I saw through all that you said, you said, you said,

This is it
This is love for sure
You just don’t say those things when you’re so secure
This is it
It is you
How could it be that the things you said were not true?
Were not true

Things you said were not true?

Things you said were not

Things you said were not true?
