"Beneath the Stained Glass"

Verse 1: You say that you’re sorry
and you didn’t mean to make me cry.
You told me lies
time and time again
and you just don’t know why.
You say you’d take it
all back if you could,
but even if you erased
the chalk marks
in time.
You’d still have crossed
the final line.


Chorus: Trust is earned
and not always given in return.
When you lie,
Somebody’s gonna get hurt,
cuz when the chest opens
and bares the soul
of every lie ever told.
You’ll never be able to hide,
Because you crossed that line.


Verse 2: Here you are
Crawling on your knees,
beggin’ for me to see.
You’re a changed man
Never to cheat again.
You must think I’m stupid
and gullible,
and you must be
delusional.
This is not just a dream
that you can wake up from
and escape.


Chorus: Trust is earned
and not always given in return.
When you lie,
Somebody’s gonna get hurt,
cuz when the chest opens
and bares the soul
of every lie ever told.
You’ll never be able to hide,
Because you crossed that line.


Bridge: You must have crossed that line
more than a thousand times
but I’m not gonna shed a tear,
no, I’m not gonna cry.
The rain can pour
down on me
and I won’t care at all
because I know
a rainbow
will appear in its place
once I say goodbye
to you.


Ending Chorus: Oh, trust is earned
and not always given in return.
When you lie,
Somebody’s gonna get hurt,
cuz when the chest opens
and bares the soul
of every lie ever told.
You’ll never be able to hide,
Because,
Trust is earned
and not always given in return.
Yeah, when you lie,
Oh, somebody’s gonna get hurt,
cuz when the chest opens
and bares the soul
of every lie ever told.
You’ll never be able to hide,
Oh, because you crossed that line,
Yeah, yeah, oh, you crossed that line.
You crossed it,
You crossed it,
Oh, you crossed that line.
