Love I Denied



Verse 1
She turned to me and said Ive got your child.
Let"s get married, let me be your wife.
I could feel myself turning, turning to ice.
I said I loved her, and she just smiled.
Her tender kisses used to drive me wild.
But this tine I felt no passion, it was just a kiss.

Verse 2
I had dreams; you know how they haunt you all through your life.
I was chasing a rainbow; she couldn’t put out the fire.
She wanted a family, she wanted me.
I left that girl; I was too scared to stay.
I packed my things and I moved far away.
I left her crying, with a baby on the way.

Chorus
Believe me I died, for you the love I denied,
Trapped by my lies, that is right.
The years pass on by, and I still pay for my crime.
Love I can't find, it serves me right.

Verse 3
I was young, I was foolish, I was way out of line.
I was burning with desire, oh I was blind.
I wasn't ready, so I ran from her side.
Into the darkness and out of the light.
Into the city where the sun never smiles.
I can"t go back; I shut that door in my life.

Chorus
Believe me I died, for you the love I denied,
Trapped by my lies, that is right.
The years pass on by, and I still pay for my crime.
Love I can't find, it serves me right.

Verse 4
An empty life, the fault is mine,
I had a girl but I left her crying,
I think about her all of the time.

Chorus
Believe me I died, for you the love I denied,
Trapped by my lies, that is right.
The years pass on by, and I still pay for my crime.
Love I can't find, it serves me right.
Love I can't find, it serves me right.
