Lyrics

I used to say I love you, it wasn't really true
I wanted to believe it and now I almost do
I used to say I love you, I said it as a threat
Or maybe as a promise to see what I could get

But my heart doesn't break anymore
No, my heart doesn't ache anymore
'Cause it just couldn't take anymore
And I've lost my illusions about you now

I used to say I love you, it wasn't what I meant
What I really meant was "Come on in my tent"
But you were reluctant, although I was so hot
Now I understand it, but back then I did not

But my heart doesn't wear anymore
No, my heart doesn't care anymore
'Cause my heart isn't there anymore
And I've lost my illusions about you now

And now if I should see you or call you on the phone (mm hmmm)
I wonder who's that person I could never call my own
Although I kind of like you, I'll never understand
Why I got so excited each time that we held hands

'Cause my heart doesn't feel anymore
No, my heart doesn't wheel anymore
'Cause it just isn't real anymore
And I've lost my illusions about you now
