(Dolly Parton)

I thought I saw the promise of forever in your eyes
I thought that I was sure of what I saw
You led me to believe that I was special in your life
So I left my heart wide open for the fall

I thought I'd found a safe and loving place inside your heart;
And I was warm and willing any time
The same soft lips that kissed me sweet were lying from the start
But I swear I thought your love was genuine
What a heartache you turned out to be

What a heartache, what a heartache,
Like a switchblade that cuts quick and deep
Oh, what a heartache, what a heart break,
Love ain't always what it appears to be
Oh, what a heartache you turned out to be

It just goes to show that you never can tell
'Cause I really thought that I knew you well
I still can't believe I could be deceived so easily
Are all these wishes I'm wishin' to myself
Just rusty coins in a wishin' well?
Wishes come true, they come false as well
It's too late for you and me
Oh, what a heartache you turned out to be

What a heartache, what a heartache,
Love is two-faced and easy to deceive
Oh, what a heartache, what a heartache,
What a mistake to think I could believe
What a heartache, what a heartache,
Like a switchblade that cuts quick and deep
Ooh, what a heartache you turned out to be
What a heartache, what a heartache,
What a heartache, what a heartache,
What a heartache.
Ooh, what a heartache you turned out to be
Ooh, what a heartache
Oh, what a heartache,
What a heart break you turned out to be
