Beautiful Charade

This is the story of a man named Max,

& a woman named Jade

& how everything they had was lost

When a terrible line was crossed one day

Never before in all her life

had Jade ever felt so betrayed

Everyone looking from the outside in

bought into the beautiful charade

Thought “what a wonderful couple,

so in love, they’ve got it made”

but all that’s left is ashes,

where there was once a white hot flame

& thousands of memories of yesterdays remain,

She’s got a pillow full of teardrop stains

cause every night they fall like rain,

Love, yeah, only true Love

Will ever ease her pain
