One Day Love

Angela Farrell

(Ireland 1971)

You love for a day, then you go on your way 
Breaking hearts, lonely hearts, though they want you to stay 
Then you laugh, how you laugh, when the tears start to fall 
Turn your back, one day love, wave your hand to them all 

Yesterday, lovely day, I was yours for a while 
In your arms there was peace as you kissed with a smile 
Words of love, empty words, whispered close to my ear 
They were lies, only lies, but I held them so dear 

How can you be so deceiving? Why do you injure my pride
Building me up with your promises only to throw me aside 
How many hearts have you broken, closing your ears to their cries
How many times have you cheated and lied with a look of deceit in your eyes

One day soon, very soon, deep in love you will fall 
And the one that you want will not answer your call 
So beware and have care, take advice from a friend 
Your kind of love, one day love, will come to an end 

How can you be so deceiving? Why do you injure my pride
Building me up with your promises only to throw me aside 
How many hearts have you broken, closing your ears to their cries
How many times have you cheated and lied with a look of deceit in your eyes

One day soon, very soon, deep in love you will fall 
And the one that you want will not answer your call 
So beware and have care, take advice from a friend 
Your kind of love, one day love, will end
