Walked away and I won’t look back
Can’t be bothered now by the love you lack
Saw my reflection in your cold, dark eyes
You heart was closed , but that’s no surprise
Can you tell me, was I just another man
Filling a void in your selfish plan?
Will the love I felt simply fade away
Like a clear blue sky on a cloudy day?
My life is passing like a babbling brook
Devoid of substance because of all you took
Did you think I’d surrender? Did you think I’d die?
Like a worn out book that’s been tossed aside?
I’ll Just say goodbye and be on my way
You’ve had you fun, now simply drift away
I won’t be played like a child’s broken toy
Your second-hand love is devoid of joy

I hadn’t thought of that phrase….
as I understand it all to well…
I don’t think love fades away…it lies in wait
you have worded the thoughts extremely well…
Powerful. I hadn’t thought of this phrase, either. The radio is full of songs about second-hand love yet I hadn’t really listened. You’ve certainly done it justice.
