Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You started a joke, which started
My poor heart crying
It took time to see that the joke was on me

I started to cry
Which made you break into laughter
It took time to see that the joke was on me

I looked at the skies,
Did you tell truth, did you tell lies?
And I sobbed in my bed
I've got red eyes, from things that you said

My heart finally died
Which led me to some misgiving
Oh, it took time to see that the joke was on me

I looked at the stars
Now I can add one to my scars
But I won't be down long
Soon I'll be up, then I'll be gone

My heart finally died
I guess now you're really living
Oh if I'd only seen
That your joke was on me
