Lyrics

There's a time she can't explain
Bitter cold with ice cold rain
And water drenched this angels face but
There was not one word,
as she fell from grace

But that was all so long ago and
Now this child is getting older
And these shadow dancers call her name
They say everybody here is capable of change

But she's been broken at least a thousand times
It's the unspoken words she hides between the lines
And the loneliness inside her eyes
It comes and goes with the days as the years fly by

She doesn't know him no not anymore
He doesn't know her not anymore

Cause it's a Jaded Love but it's a strong connection
Invades your soul when you least expect it
It's a Jaded Love far from perfection
And though it's real you may need protection, yeah

You don't trust his loving eyes, no
You don't trust his painted on smi le
And the one thing that you like the least
Is the tainted way he tries to make you weak but

Life is all just a game of chance
Left, right, up, down the devil does his dance
He'll rock you like an angel just to lock you in chains
Strip you of your innocence to dress you in pain

But she's been broken at least a thousand times
It's the unspoken words she hides between the lines
And the loneliness inside her eyes
It comes and goes with the days as the years fly by

She doesn't know him no not anymore
He doesn't know her not anymore

Cause it's a Jaded Love but it's a strong connection
Invades your soul when you least expect it
It's a Jaded Love far from perfection
And though it's real, you may need protection, yeah

She doesn't know him no not anymore
He doesn't know her anymore
