I loved her, like she did me.

But cruel and jealous she could be.

We were old sweethearts before, I just wanted something more...

 

She was controlling, and wanted to rule.

So I fell in love with a new beautiful fool.

My feelings for her grew and grew everyday, but the ones for my ruling sweetheart just faded away.

 

My head was spinning, like a waltzer at the fair.

I knew my wedding day would soon be here, and I would have to pretend to love my old dear.

So I decided to spend my life with my new fool, my head was instantly clear.

 

I know it was cruel to leave her at the alter.

But I couldn't bring myself to face her.

I'd rather spend my life with the new one i love, rather than spend a lifetime trapped... with my cruel sweetheart dove.
