You’ve Lied

You’ve lied by me–

You’ve lied by her.

You’ve lied by almost everything,

But most of all–

You’ve lied by yourself.

The night falls,

Your thoughts close in–

And you lie yourself down. 

You find yourself lying on the ground.

Close your eyes,

All you see–lies around you.

 

And you can lie by me,

And lie by her,

But lying by yourself

Doesn’t do you justice.

You lie awake at night,

Lie in the darkness,

Closed eyes to the light–

Leave you lying in the day

On the floor,

Cold and lonely.

As you lie wrapped in blankets

You can try

But you just can’t cover

Where you lied the night before.
