"Everyone loves to love a lie" as written by Jay Clifford and Howie Day....
She put her shoulder down into the rain
She doesn't know how she gonna explain
The way it's always been it will probably be again
Cause everyone loves to love a lie

Can't wait for the rain to stop falling
Such a victim of circumstance
On the edge and she thinks of running
Shattering all their plans
Late again and he won't stop calling
Such a victim of their romance
struck down by a strange cold addiction
he never had a chance

She'll need a miracle
to keep her feet down on the ground
She'll need a miracle
if she's ever to be found
and I swear it won't be long
Cause everyone loves to love a lie

By the glow of a red light flashing
She's a vision of poetry
Not sure just where she's crashing
or who she's supposed to be
Doesn't know if its him shes feeling
Doesn't know if it's someone else
Round the bend there's a wrong turn coming
She's putting it on herself

She'll need a miracle
just to keep her feet down on the ground
She'll need a miracle
if she's ever to be found
and I swear it won't be long
Cause everyone loves to love a lie

She'll go where she wants to go
where she wants to go
where she wants to go


She'll need a miracle
just to keep her feet down on the ground
She'll need a miracle
if she's ever to be found
and I swear it won't be long
Cause everyone loves to love a lie

Cause everyone loves to love a lie
Cause everyone loves to love a lie
Cause everyone loves to love a lie
Cause everyone loves to love a lie
Cause everyone loves to love a lie
Cause everyone loves to love a lie

    General CommentI LOVE this song!! It relates to me and my bf breaking up and me thinking that it could still somehow evolve into something. What's it mean to you?

    General CommentMy listen to the lyrics:

    She put her shoulder down into the rain
    She doesnt know how shes gunna explain
    The way its always been
    It will probably be again
    Cause everyone loves to love a lie

    Cant wait for the rain to stop falling
    Such a victim of circumstance
    On the edge and she thinks of running
    Shattering all their plans
    Late again and you wont stop calling
    Such a victim of her romance
    Struck down by a strange cold addiction
    He never had a chance

    Shell need a miracle to keep her feet down on the ground
    Shell need a miracle if shes ever to be found
    Yeah, and I swear it wont be long
    Cause everyone loves to love a lie

    By the glow of a red light flashin
    Shes a vision of poetry
    Not sure just where shes crashing
    Who shes supposed to be

    Doesnt know if its him shes feeling
    Doesnt know if its someone else
    Around the bend theres a wrong turn a coming
    Shes putting it on a shelf

    Shell need a miracle to keep her feet down on the ground
    Shell need a miracle if shes ever to be found
    Yeah, and I swear it wont be long
    Cause everyone loves to love a lie

    Shell go where she wants to go, where she wants to go, where she wants to go (youll meet me on the dock - various background noise and talk)
    Shell need a miracle to keep her feet down on the ground
    Shell need a miracle if shes ever to be found
    Yeah, and I swear it wont be long
    Cause everyone loves to love a lie (7x)
