Smoke and Ashes
When an affair dissolves it can leave a bitter taste and a desire for revenge.
You said you loved me; you were leaving your bloke
But all that you left was a handful of smoke
This is what happens when a love affair crashes
One’s left with smoke the other with ashes
Pledged when kids are older grown, left school
And I drank it all in like a gullible fool
You drained my resources you’ve stolen my life
Led me to believe that you’d be my wife
What’s left to be writ? What’s left to be said?
Was it ever love or a dream in your head?
All hollow promises dragged out for years
And what of my help with your mortgage arrears?
Now that you’ve left, now that you’re gone
I know you’re a cheat but my love burns on
So back to your children back to your man
And I’ll soldier on just the best way I can
It’s the price I must pay for hoping to dare
That you’d really leave him, a new life we’d share
But I’ll make sure you feel vengeance lashes
I’ve told your husband now taste bitter ashes
