My substitute lover, there could be no other, so quick as you to rob another

Of a useless heart, all broken and beat, that’s been trod upon by countless feet

 

My substitute lover, I’ll never meet, you elsewhere alone, but in discreet

 

Away from prying, lying eyes, which see not past our love’s disguise

 

Writing us off as fools in lust, without a single shred of trust, in something more which surely must, lie between all those of us

Who play this game of lovelorn lust, and bury our hearts to rust and dust

 

Inside a chest all locked up tight, with keys long lost and out of sight

 

My substitute lover, you fight and fight, to chain me fast, with all your might

And force me back into the light, which has been lost within this night

 

Filled with moons and stars alike, which keep us out of harsher sights

That do so burn to tear apart, this love we’ve built within the dark

 

My substitute lover, I’ll never find, another like you, to be just mine

And so, I’ll waste away with time, and simply hold on to this lifeline

 

You have cast forth with me in mind, and pray you’ll catch me one more time

Before I drift on down the line, away from you, in all good time
