Disappointed – inspiration

The lyrics for “Disappointed” are here.

When someone who calls himself your enemy inflicts pain upon you, it hurts for a little while but then you can move on. But when someone who is dear to you inflicts pain upon you, it hurts deeper and can last a lifetime. This song is about a time when I was sorely let down by someone I loved dearly and held in the highest esteem.

Disappointed – lyrics

Disappointed

I’ve had a person do me wrong before
I’ve had to learn how to be strong before
But you gave me the greatest gift and then you stole it back
I’ve had a friend who broke my heart before
I’ve had to make a brand new start before
But you broke all my hopes and dreams, I’ll tell you, that’s a fact
And the worst part is not the pain in which I drown
But the worst part is the way you let me down, ‘cause

It hurt me when you hurt me
And I cried when you lied
But my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me
Oh, how could you desert me?
Can’t move on though I’ve tried
Well my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me

I know you never meant to do me harm
I know you never meant to cause alarm
But you scared me out of my wits and that has left a scar
And I don’t know if I can trust again,
Forgive and say that we can just be friends
‘cause you have changed and I can’t recognise you as you are

And the worst part is not the pain in which I drown
But the worst part is the way you let me down, ‘cause

It hurt me when you hurt me
And I cried when you lied
But my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me
Oh, how could you desert me?
Can’t move on though I’ve tried
Well my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me

How could you break the lamp that holds the light?
How could you speak of day but walk by night?
How could you let the tightrope slip?
You’re falling, lost your grip
I’m falling, I have tripped
You’re falling, lost your grip
I’m falling…

It hurt me when you hurt me
And I cried when you lied
But my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me
Oh, how could you desert me?
Can’t move on though I’ve tried
Well my heart and soul, they are disjointed
Because you disappointed me
