Mandy Woods' new single release, March 2017

lyrics

I waited up for you all night,
Your promise ringing loudly in my ears;
But hope slowly faded till the breaking day
Brought nothing but a flood of bitter tears.

I can’t be the first one who believed in you,
Swallowed lies as slick as Texas oil;
You said you’d walk away from her to be with me—
Like a fool, I never doubted you at all.

Up and down that room I paced a hundred times,
Thought I heard your car pull up outside;
But wishing never changes cold reality:
It’s just imagination running wild.

I can’t be the first one who believed in you,
Swallowed lies as slick as Texas oil;
You said you’d walk away from her to be with me—
Like a fool, I never doubted you at all.

Deep inside came words I could no longer ignore:
Talk is cheap—you’ve heard it all before.

I waited till the morning light
Showed you and I were just a fragile dream;
Hope died, wounded pride, you chose her over me,
But love never comes with guarantees.

I can’t be the first one who believed in you,
Swallowed lies as slick as Texas oil;
You said you’d walk away from her to be with me—
Like a fool, I never doubted you at all.
