Never Had a Chance

You were like a dream, almost reality
Before you were fully real, you were gone

You took my heart, stole it with charm
Before you gave me yours, you were gone

You toyed with my heart, like a yo-yo
Before I learned the game, you were gone

You blamed me for leading you on
Before I could let you in, you were gone

You said love, forced me to say it too
Before I could believe it, you were gone

You told me to push you out, so I did
Before I realized my mistake, you were gone
