about

the serial cheater contemplates his evil ways...

lyrics

Eyes that burn like the ocean at sunset,
I have lost myself in them.
She's all ears to every word I'm saying,
Every fatal message that I send.

Too late, I can't turn back now,
This has already gone too far.
Too late, I've let down my defences,
Let her steal into my heart.

I've seen the devil in disguise,
Seen my reflection in a pair of pale blue eyes.
Forbidden fruit leave a bitter taste.
Too many times I've strayed,
Too many guilty days.

Today, I woke to
'How are you, wasn't last night great'?
As soon as I realised where I was,
I was planning my escape.

How come? I wasn't even trying,
Wasn't even looking my best.
How come? What was it about me,
That made me stand out from the rest?

I've seen the devil in disguise,
Seen my reflection in a pair of pale blue eyes.
Forbidden fruit leave a bitter taste.
Too many times I've strayed,
Too many guilty days.

I've learned something,
Guilt will always leave a trace.
You won't be able,
To look her in the face.
You'll avoid her eyes,
Won't believe the lies you tell.

For she's fragile, like a summer breeze.
She must never know the truth.
I take my shoes off in a pitch dark hallway,
To avoid her pitch dark looks.

No more, I tell myself again,
But how many times have I said it now?
No more, and I almost believe me,
But I'm lying to myself as well.

I've seen the devil in disguise,
Seen my reflection in a pair of pale blue eyes.
Forbidden fruit leave a bitter taste.
Too many times I've strayed,
Too many guilty days.

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
