Between the Lies

BETWEEN THE LIES

Though the dream still looks familiar
The round of day still courses on, but
Secrets are bound to find their way to the light

Alcohol and the lonely spirit
Makes you turn again from her
Not long before the ties that bind will be undone

It’s a down and dirty story
Filled with empty alibis
Can’t you see, she can read between the lies

Punctual you always call her
You make her laugh as is your style, but
She no more believes it when you smile

It’s a down and dirty story
See it flash before your eyes
Can’t you see, she can read between the lies

You drift among ten thousand things
Under cloak of secrecy
She let you roam but you don’t see
You’re only sleeping

The day will come upon you
As the sun will surely rise
All this time, all this time, all this time
She could read between the lies
