She is drained by a need to be loved and
not the need to love someone. But as that
tale of promiscuous ends, it's time to
straighten up.
And he said, "When will I learn the world is
not what I wanted? When will I forgive?
People can change. Until then, at arms
length, I'll keep myself away where it is
safer. But, say a prayer for the brackish
beats of old we've given time enough to
before. We're civilized but there's no proof,
we found a ceiling but there's no roof."
He's not the one who is always saying, "I'll
probably relapse some things never
change, and I just want to be myself in all
my shapes."
But he said, "Oh, I know you're just
crumbling dust, but I still love you so I trust.
I trust. But as rings tighten, closest widen,
and I'm haunted by your past that I can't
deny. You know I love you but I cannot
deny it so."
She - I never lied to you
He - Yeah what you said is what you did, is
what you said. But you weren't true to
me... you weren't true.
She - I never lied to you. You know I never
lied to you, but I said words that weren't
true at the time. You know I lied every
night to you. But you always said, "Say a
prayer for the brackish beasts of old we've
given time enough to before. We're
civilized but there's no proof, we found a
ceiling but there's no roof."
He - You know I wish you had lied. I wish
you had lied because the truth hurts more
than a lie ever could.
