One, two, one, two, three, four
Some love is just a lie of the heart
And they may not want it to end
I've lived long enough to have learned
But that won't happen to us

It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
But you're going to face a moment of truth
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
It's a matter of trust
You can't go the distance
I know you have doubts

You can take it, you can leave it, whatever you choose
And I'll walk away a fool or a king
It's make believe until its only a matter of time
But then it never was a matter of trust
I'm sure you're aware love
When the whole situation was wrong
Some love is just a lie of the soul
After you've heard lie upon lie
Some love is just a lie of the heart

Cause it's always been a matter of trust
It's always been a matter of trust
Cause it's always been a matter of trust
