The Lies

He came right up to me
We stood there, silently
And then he spoke
And with that broke
Off a part of me

He held on to my gaze
As I tried to tear away
And to his surprise
He saw in my eyes
Unshed tears I’d tried to hide

[Chorus]
I never meant for you to know
I never thought that it would show
I hadn’t thought
That I’d be caught
In the book of lies that I had told

I never wanted him to see me this way
I never thought today will be the day
But now I can’t stop, the truth unfolds
And no more do I know what the future holds

[2nd Chorus]
I guess I never really planned through this
Never thought that we’d get to this
And in the end, the loser’s me
I guess we were never meant to be

These few moments feel like ages
Waiting for his final say
He’s thinking, eyes closed pages
I can’t stand to end this wait

(Chorus)
I never meant for you to know
I never thought that it would show
I hadn’t thought
That I’d be caught
In the book of lies that I had told

He looks at me
As if he’s seeing me
For the first time in history
I don’t blame him
It’s kinda ugly
For him to finally see the real me

He turns around without even a word to me
And so the guy that had meant the world to me
Turns his back and walks away slowly
I don’t even get to say sorry

[Bridge]
For all the times I’d gone away
For all the times I’d gone astray
For all the times you never knew
All the secrets I’d been keeping from you

Now I wake up late at night
Thinking how nothing went right
Maybe I should never have lied
But it’s too late to change your mind

(Chorus)
I never meant for you to know
I never thought that it would show
I hadn’t thought
That I’d be caught
In the book of lies that I had told

(2nd Chorus)
I guess I never really planned through this
Never thought that we’d get to this
And in the end, the loser’s me
I guess we were never meant to be…
