The Music Played

An angry silence lay
where love had been
and in your eyes a look
I`ve never seen
If I had found the words
you might have stayed,
but as I turned to speak
The music played.

As lovers danced their way
around the floor
I sat and watched you walk
towards the door
I heard a friend of yours
suggest you stayed
and as you took his hand
the music played.

Across the darkened room
the fatal signs I saw
You`ve been something more than friends before
While I was serving you
by clinging to my pride,
he had been waiting
and I drove you to side

I couldn`t say the things
I should have said,
Refused to let my heart
Control my head.
But I was made to see
the price I paid
and as he held you close
the music played.
And as I lost your love
the music played.
