    Lyrics

    There you were beautiful
    The promise of love was written on your face
    You led me on with untrue kisses
    You held me captured in your false embrace

    Quicker than I could bat an eye
    Seems you were telling me goodbye
    Just a minute ago your love was here
    All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
    Sweetness was only heartache's camouflage
    The love I saw in you was just a mirage

    You promised that happiness we'll ever share
    But all I have are memories of love that was never there

    We used to meet in romantic places
    You gave the illusion that your love was real
    Now all that's left are lipstick traces
    From the kisses you only pretended to feel

    And now our meeting you avoid
    And so my world you have destroyed
    Just a minute ago your love was here
    All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
    The way you wrecked my life was like sabotage
    The love I saw in you was just a mirage

    You brought me up just to throw me down
    you love me and my dreams shattered all on your ground

    You only filled me with despair
    By showing love that wasn't there
    Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
    A green oasis where there's only sand
    You lured me into something I should have dodged
    The love I saw in you was just a mirage

    To you I gave true love from deep within
    You made me hungry for your love
    When it was not deeper than your skin

    Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
    A green oasis where there's only sand
    You lured me into, into something I should have dodged
    The love I saw in you was just a mirage
