There's a crack in her smile as she stares in his eyes

A short-lived pause overflowing with lies

The decayed truth heavy on her lips

With each look into his eye, into a deeper guilt she slips

The scent of her perfume lingers in the air

Invisible tears drown her, as into his eyes she stares

Her hands are shaking as she writes the letter she'll never send

As she looks in his eyes she knows she can no longer pretend...

She left him alone with perfume and a broken promise

His dreams are now nightmares and pain where once was bliss

The memories he kept are slowly slipping from him grip

The second hand unwound and all the dreams start to slip

Now a taunting image and her name are his eternal tease

Because all she left him with was perfume and a broken promise
