A song I wrote today on my way to piano.
A girl reflects on how her boyfriend is cheating on her and how he always 'jokes' that he's cheating on her but she knows it's no joke.

Your mouth says ‘Yes’ and your eyes do too.
But I know you mean ‘No’ and that it’s not true.
While you look in my eyes and you show me your love
I know this can never be true…

You say you love me but you don’t.
You say you’ll kiss me, but there’s no love.
You say you have no other but I see you
Looking at all the girls out there!
And you tell me that you’ve got just me
But I know that this can’t be.
You tell the truth, and say you’re
“Joking, Joking”
But that could be a Joke too.

Your lips are a searing kiss on their own
And your hair is a fiery gold.
You’ve got eyes of blue rain that turn to black thunder.
I can’t believe you’re so bold.

You say you love me but you don’t.
You say you’ll kiss me, but there’s no love.
You say you have no other but I see you
Looking at all the girls out there!
And you tell me that you’ve got just me
But I know that this can’t be.
You tell the truth, and say you’re
“Joking, Joking”
But that could be a Joke too.

Why do I stand here and let you have your way?
Why do I stand here and let you walk away?
You loved me once? So what happened to you?
You loved me once? What happened?
Or is it all a Joke?

You say you love me but you don’t.
You say you’ll kiss me, but there’s no love.
You say you have no other but I see you
Looking at all the girls out there!
And you tell me that you’ve got just me
But I know that this can’t be.
You tell the truth, and say you’re
“Joking, Joking”
But that could be a Joke too.

You tell the truth and you say you’re
“Joking, Joking”
But that could be a Joke too.

“Joking, Joking”
But that could be a joke too.
