"One Perfect Lie" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
One
One perfect lie
Was it told
Too soon
And one
One perfect life
Turned to stone
Cold mercy

I
Kneel
Down
By your grave
I
Kneel
Down
Torn and guilty

Did I
Let you down
Say goodbye
Too soon
And did you understand
My mistake
Forgive me

I
Kneel
Down
By your side
I
Kneel
Down
Scared and helpless

One perfect lie
Wrapped in kindness and tears
I wish I believed in your heaven
One perfect life
Led by blind faith and trust
If God has a heart he will find you

Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty
Torn and guilty

    General CommentI really love Pure album, Gary Numan opened a new sound, under his electronic base, and his lyrics were about internal religious fights, one perfect album, it's not a lie this album!
