It was tempting, he told you he loved you
But only if his lies, you were able to see through
In the heat of the moment, no one can think right
You've been with him for too long, didn't see a warning light

A few months pass by and you decided to get a check-up
The results came back and that's when you knew you messed up
You're angry, your soul is bleeding
He kept a secret from you and you couldn't believe him

"Why'd you do this to me?" you scream in distress
He told you if you really loved him, then he shouldn't have to take a test
Your life is ruined and it could have been avoided
But temption is a mother and your heart, he toyed with it

Now you've learned your lesson, little one, stay protected
To avoid another mess, go ahead and get tested
