Painted with autumn colors

I killed my dreams for your happiness
yet I could never understand what exactly made you happy
it was so hard to connect to each other
yet it was equally hard to disconnect from someone who had won me all over
if anything has really changed, I can’t say
yesterday you were a stranger and so are you today
it’s no point in me begging you to stay
when we could never accurately guess what we wanted to say
better to pack this story, this picture
Painted with autumn colors
it hides the coldness and darkness inside
the lies, the deception and everything but the truth

Its the bitter truth that what I may do or not do
I’ll always be under the weight of guilt and blame
either I remain with you or refrain
nothing ever would absolve this pain
your smile is a perfect reflection of your lies
yesterday we were distant, so we are today
it’s no point in dreaming when the hope’s lost
much wiser it is now to cover the picture
Painted with autumn colors
it hides the coldness and darkness inside
the lies, the deception and everything but the truth
