And in the moment that was lost
Behind the recklessness of lust
I missed the little voice that said
Not now, please stop, you broke the trust.

I listened with a careful ear
And heard not what I need to hear
Not all the things that should I hear
But only what I want to hear.

The choice I made so selfishly
Was based upon the needs of me
And all the little signs ignored
Without a thought for you or yours

And as I wake to realise
The awful truth will crystallise
That when I missed that little voice
That said please stop I had a choice
