When you live a big lie

March 24, 2018

I lived a big lie
I was afraid of myself
Spent my time thinking
About everybody else

When you live a big lie
The little ones will follow
Till your brain short-circuits
And your insides are hollow

I couldn’t take your love
Too much beauty and truth
I blamed it all on you
And I squandered my youth

When you live a big lie
The little ones will follow
Till your brain short-circuits
And your insides are hollow

I’m rebuilding myself
Feeling better every day
Maybe we can get
A cup of coffee someday

When you live a big lie
The little ones will follow
Till your brain short-circuits
And your insides are hollow
