what was it about those lies?
you let me know, now i know
if i could just cry you underwater
its not so much when now as
finding the right way
it wasnt all lies, but it was close
i wouldnt always be there
to bury my ghosts
but you werent even close
to finding the right way
but you would always end up
blame free, needle on
just when i was finally finding
something all my own
finding the right way
now i know
carry now carry now
now i know
you let me know

    General Commenti absolutely adore this song, it's heartbreaking. i've always thought of it as someone waking up and realizing that the person they so admired is really a liar, or an asshole, not at all who they thought they were. I think it puts across well how foolish such an epiphany can make a person feel.
