Summer Lies - The Magnetic Fields

We used to dance like it was going out of style
When you loved me for awhile
And I remember every word you ever said; every kiss

We used to sing all the oldest songs we knew
But the words were never true for you
Or was it all a game of solitaire played in the dark?

All the sweetest things you said and I believed
Were summer lies
Hanging in the willow trees like the dead
Were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again

I whispered too but the words I said were true
And I gave up my whole world for you
I gave you all the best years of my life and half the worst
And now you're gone
I pine and wane, pale and wan
Never knowing when it's dawn, curtains drawn
Wasting away, cutting myself

All the sweetest things you said and I believed
Were summer lies
Hanging in the willow trees like the dead
Were summer lies
I'll never fall in love again
