Music & Lyrics by Patricia Santos


You were still here this morning
with those kisses I crave.
Now I'm cold in the evening,
but my heart's not your slave.
What a foolish mistake,
one I shouldn't have made,
to think you were the one.

Why'd you have to pretend
this is not what it is,
if what you really wanted
was to have hers and his?
But I don't need you with me
taking time from someone:
the one I should love.

Please try to keep in mind, dear,
that I said from the start,
"this may feel so good,
but it's wrong."
No more time to be kind, dear,
though you're here in my heart.
You may come on so soft,
but you leave me so long.

Oh darling,
you drive me insane.
But it's so hard to hate you
with your love on my brain.
Too bad for me -
too bad for you, too -
this is not to be,
it is not you.
You are not the one
the one I should love.
