Lie To Me

You press your lips
To my forehead
Kissing away dreams of mine
You tell me that you’re sorry and I know
You mean it
But could you please just keep kissing me tonight
Lie to me
Make it sweet
Simply don’t stop no
Let me believe that it’s real
Lie to me
Whisper to me gently
As if you were still in love
Kiss away my feelings
And take my memories away
When you go
So I don’t
Have to remember the
Happiest I could ever be
Is only when you’re here with me
When I pick my head up from my pillow
And finally come out I see
That you thoughtfully made me a cup of coffee
Done just the way you know I like it
I add a pinch of heartache and watch a tear splash in
When I realize that you’ll never make me one again
So I let you watch me dump it down the drain
I just can’t rinse away the pain
Lie to me
Make it sweet
Simply don’t stop no
Let me believe that it’s real
Lie to me
Whisper to me gently
As smooth as if you were still
Meaning every word
Kiss away my feelings
And take my memories away
When you go
So I don’t
Have to remember the
Happiest I could ever be
Is only when you’re here with me
Lie to me lie to me lie lie lie to me
Let me hear you say you love me once more
Lie to me lie to me lie lie lie to me
Before you take my
Heart with you out the door
Lie me a kiss right on the cheek
Burning away sweet memories
Of our first I love you’s
Lie me a kiss right on the shoulder
Reminding me that in the morning I
Will be without my boulder
I better learn to swim on my own real soon
Then maybe someday I’ll catch up to you
Lie me a kiss right on the lips
The same way you did for the first time
In that apple orchard
A whole two people ago
Lie me a kiss right on the mouth
Breathe away my truth
Darling I will honestly let you go
If you’d just take your time to lie to me tonight
Lie to me
Make it sweet
Simply don’t stop no
Let me believe that it’s real
Lie to me
Whisper to me gently
I want to remember every
Final word that you say
Kiss away my feelings
And take my memories away
When you go
So I don’t
Have to remember the
Happiest I could ever be
Is only when you’re here with me
Darling I will honestly let you go
If you’d just take your time to lie to me tonight
