Love is magical, they said
but nothing hurts more than love
True love is sweeter

I got caught up in a triangle
Loving someone who loves someone else
And her deception was accurate
Her calculations were all superb
And I couldn’t have suspected

She robs Peter for Paul’s sake
And I, the Peter, robbed
Her Paul freely feeding fat
My wallet into bankruptcy

I got caught up in a triangle
The ugliest adventure of my life
Love turned bitter and sweeter
Bitter for me, sweeter for him
And she manipulated the story
Offered me enough bitter pills to swallow

I got caught up in a triangle
The cheating lover in between us
Professing same love for both

To him real, fake to me
It lasted as strange illusion
Her love; her lies; her manipulations
