Well the truth it fell so heavy Like a hammer through the room
That I could choose another over her
You always said I was an actor, baby Guess in truth you thought me just amateur 
That you never saw the signs That you never lost your grip
Oh, come on now
That's such a childish claim
Now I wear the brand of traitor Don't it seem a bit absurd When it's clear I was so obviously framed
When it's clear I was so obviously framed

Now you act so surprised To hear what you already know
And all you really had to do was ask
I'd have told you straight away
All those lies were truth And all that was false was fact

Now you hold me close and hard
But I was like a statue at most Refusing to acknowledge you'd been hurt
Now you're clawing at my throat And you're crying all is lost
But your tears they felt so hot upon my shirt But your tears they felt so hot upon my shirt 
Well the truth it fell so heavy Like a hammer through the room
That I could choose another over her
You always said I was an actor, baby Guess in truth you thought me just amateur 
Was it you who told me once
Now looking back it seems surreal
That all our mistakes are merely grist for the mill
So why is it now after I had my fill Would you steal from me the sorrow that I've earned Shall we call this a lesson learned? Shall we call this a lesson learned?
