Don't say It Unless You Mean It
 

Your words flow like a song from your lips to my heart,

So easy they come,

I’m afraid that as quick they will fade,

Like smoke rings swallowed up into the air.

I wanna believe the uttering you claim is from your heart,

But they seem just like words,

As if you are just an actor playing a part.

So I ask that you only say what you mean,

To mean what you say,

To not get carried away in the heat of the moment,

To not promise what you think I want to hear just to get your way.

Don’t group me with the others,

A thrill that you will in time forget,

Respect who I am,

Don’t play me for a fool.

Don’t say it unless you mean it,

Don’t throw around those words unless they are true.
