You Lied


Lyrics & Info

Performances (2)

Stare out my window at this darkest night 
The light from my porch shining softly yeah it's barely bright 
Enough to cast a dimly lit path 
Can you see it will it lead you back?

I look up at the stars, the same stars that you look upon 
Like a puzzle, all the answers seems to fade with the dawn 
I try to remember the last time that I saw your face 
But I'm forgetting what did you say as you turned away 
You said time knew nothing 
Now you're gone and time is all I have left

You lied you lied 
You said you'd always love me 
And I was such a fool 
But it felt so beautiful 
To believe in you 
I've cried how I've cried 
I'm standing here all awkward with two empty arms 
And the messed up thing about it is 
I still want your love

I go back in my mind to that time and place 
The sun shining golden, that impossible smile on your face 
Your eyes a dark pool calling, I was falling in 
You offered warmth when I was shivering

How did you know each thing I was needing, just like a drug 
You tugged and pulled you were strumming, playing my heart strings 
Eager like a puppy, like a puppet I gave everything 
To satisfy your endless need 
You talked slowly like some dime store prophet 
Well reading a few books don't make you smart

You lied you lied 
You said you'd always love me 
And I was such a fool 
But it felt so beautiful 
To believe in you 
I've cried how I've cried 
I'm standing here all awkward with two empty arms 
And the messed up thing about it is 
I still want your love

Love take me back to yesterday 
Let me forget you could ever hurt me this way 
But I can't 'cause…

You lied you lied 
You said you'd always love me 
And I was such a fool 
But it felt so beautiful 
To believe in you 
I've cried how I've cried 
I'm standing here all awkward with two empty arms 
And the messed up thing about it is 
I still want your love
