Song Info

Once I trusted you

Once I held you up so high

Once I trusted you

Now I have discovered your lie

I never thought it would fall

Never thought it would fall apart

Gotta try to make decisions

Do I walk away to save a fragile heart


I have been betrayed


I hoped I was wrong, I prayed


I have been betrayed

Something so good has been allowed to fade

Once I trusted you

Once I held your heart so close

Once I trusted you

Now it’s you I fear most

I’m scared of how you make me feel

I’ve never felt so much anger before

Gotta decide which direction I take

If I decide to head out of the door

The first real soul song I’d ever written after years of trying. It felt I was finally learning how to write songs.

I loved this song from writing it and got really excited playing it for Ian.  It has a soul, which I think a lot of my songs lack. Yeah, this one has a body and soul.
