Blind Love: the line between secrets & lies

Forgive me if you think this is not an accurate depiction But in my own defense, you’re your own constant contradiction And every word you say could mean something else You don’t think you lie to me, ’cause you lie to yourself And I’m sure you told yourself it’s all about perception But anyway I view this, you used some form of deception You take the cowards way out, ’cause it’s easy to do You stab me in the back whenever you can’t face the truth And I said you could reserve the right to change your mind Just tell me the truth so my decisions are mine It’s hard to love someone who stands in their own way ’cause you can’t make them happy without pushing them to change And what you say you want and what you always do Seems to be a blindfold accompanying a noose And while your words seemed to dance with me, you always walked another way You said you want honesty, but won’t be tied to what you say So you reserved your freedom by wrapping those chains around my neck And as you pulled away to backtrack, they tightened with every step So Why keep saying you want one thing, if you want something else instead Your words I embraced until I saw what your actions said So if you want to lie to yourself, that’s fine But stop filling this boys head with lies Stop filling this boys head with lies Stop filling this boys head with lies If you want to lie to yourself, that’s fine Just tell me the truth so my decisions are mine You said you hate how romance becomes a circle of lies Then you turn the music up to sing out the reprise Everyone loves a fantasy, but there’s a reason they always die Only a fool loves a jackal for its honest eyes What others did that cut you deep You turned around and did to me You think all is fair in love and war Till bombs are dropping at your door Stop filling this boys head with lies Stop filling this boys head with lies If you want to lie to yourself, that’s fine Just tell me the truth so my decisions are mine What others did that cut you deep You turned around and did to me You think all is fair in love and war Till bombs are dropping at your door But if you never follow through With what you say you’re going to do Then who are you trying to deceive When you tell me who you want to be Stop filling this boys head with lies, ’cause while you’re buying your time, you’re wasting mine If you keep twisting these chains like the truth in your mind Then I need to get away if I want to survive.

When I first kissed you, You pulled away But you came back for more, When you were lonely But said you could never see Things working between you and me As I slid between your thighs In an attempt to change your mind And it worked for a little while, But you wouldn’t stay You said that you needed time, To get your head straight But you came back to me Getting down on your knees But you were never one to beg You just slid between my legs Well, if you can’t love me, Or you just won’t At least have the courage, To let me go ’cause you hold onto me Like an insurance policy And you tell me the sweetest lies When you want to fuck other guys So now when it’s burning down Now when it’s burning down Now when it’s burning down You can choke on the ash, ’cause my feet have hit the ground.

You played the exit music I just walked out the door So I hope this provides a proper goodbye ’cause I just can’t speak to you no more Well, I’m learning how to let things go When I give it my all and have nothing to show ’cause you always took all you could from me But couldn’t even give back an apology Now I wouldn’t call you a wolf in sheep’s clothing You’re more of a sheepish wolf You’re like one of those natural disasters Those closest get hurt the most Well at least it’s clear now and we both know I meant little to you so it’s time to go ’cause I told you I’d always be there for you If you’d just show me respect by speaking the truth We were friends then lovers, then friends again ’cause you were afraid we were getting to close But if friendship can’t survive once the romance has died It’s because you failed at them both Well I caught you in the arms of another man when you said you just needed to be alone So either you thought that I wouldn’t see through your lies Or you just lie to yourself the most So you played the exit music, I just walked out the door ’cause our friendship died when you told me those lies And was buried with your lack of remorse You played the exit music I just walked out the door ’cause if you can’t see why there’s no love where there are lies You were never really a friend at all So you played the exit music I just walked out the door But I guess that I, should give the proper goodbye Since your words mean nothing at all.
