There you were beautiful
The promise of love was written on your face
You led me on with untrue kisses
You had me captured in your false embrace
Quicker than I can bat an eye
Since you were telling me goodbye

Oh, just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
Sweetness was only heartaches camouflage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage

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

We used to meet in romantic places
You gave me 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 meetings, you avoid
And so my world, you have destroyed

Oh, just a minute ago your love was here
All of a sudden it seem 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 left me and my dreams shattered all on the ground

Oh, oh, oh you only fill me with despair
By showing love that wasn't there
Oh, just like the desert shows a thirsty man
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, but it was no deeper than your skin

Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
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

Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
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

The love I saw in you was just a mirage
The love I saw in you was just a mirage
Just like the desert shows a thirsty man
Green oasis
