Parton, Dolly - What A Heartache Lyrics

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
What a heartache you turned out to be

What a heartache, what a heartache
Love ain't always what it appears to be
What a heartache you turned out to be

I thought I'd found a safe and lovin' place inside your heart
And I was warm and willing anytime
The same soft lips that kissed me sweet
Were lyin' 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
Ooo, what a heartache you turned out to be

It just goes to show that you never can tell
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
Like 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, ooo, what a heart break
Love is two-faced and easy to believe

What a heartache, ooo, what a heartache
What a mistake to think I could believe
Ooo, what a heartache you turned out to be
Oh, what a heartache you turned out to be
