Life can stop.
Just as long as the music keeps playing,
I won't notice a thing.


What are we doing here?
How’d we get into this mess?
What are we doing here?
Is it too late to regret?

Don’t tell me the truth.
I know exactly what I did,
I don’t need to hear it all over.
Tell me lies.

How did we get here?
I don’t want to know myself this way.
How did we get here?
What is there left to say?

Don’t tell me the truth.
I know exactly what I did,
I don’t need to hear it all over.
Tell me lies.

We got in too far
Going too fast
Can’t slam on the breaks
If the exit has passed.

Blame me,
We all know that I blew it,
Did you ever think
I even could do it?

What are we doing here?
What are we doing?
What are we doing here?
What are we doing?
Tell me, tell me lies.

Story of my life this article! I love that someone has actually found a way to voice regret with wanting to be told lies when you were the one who blew it. This poem would make an amazing song! Keep it up girl!
