Mars Hotel (The Mayfield Four)

I saw her in an empty bar The smell of wine and cheap cigars Trigger visions of her face to this day We tried to dance for years to come But two can't lead and waltz as one We loved and learned And learned to love But it was not enough Foolish pride got in our way She could take my heart and soul She could take my hand to hold But why'd she have to take advantage of me I tried to pay for all the things She could want or ever need Don't make me pay for all the past please So now we're living far apart I hope to God our paths don't cross This may seem shallow But her beauty makes me weak I long to hold her once again And reconcile and then give in To realize that later on We made the same mistake Hold on to the lessons you've learned She could take my heart and soul She could take my hand to hold But why'd she have to take advantage of me I tried to pay for all the things She could want or ever need Don't make me pay for all the past So much to tow, bogged down With all the history to hold The blame fell hard on me Apologies were too short lived She never really could forgive mistakes She took my heart, she took my soul She took my fragile hand to hold She took advantage all the time I'll take her back 'cause her love makes me blind
