we'll remember good lies
when we carry them home
with us to our bedside table
and our coffee sets

we'll remember good lies
when they live in a room
with us, use our kitchen table
and our little beds

we'll remember good lies
when we carry them home
with us to our bedside table
and our coffee sets

we'll remember good lies
when they're always with us
in our beds, even when we
shake our heads

let's just imitate the real
until we find a better one
let's just imitate the real
until we find a better one

remember the good lies
we'll remember the good lies when
remember the good lies
we'll remember the good lies when

let's just imitate the real
until we find a better one
let's just imitate the real
until we find a better one

remember the good lies
we'll remember the good lies when
remember the good lies
we'll remember the good lies when

we'll remember good lies
when we carry them home with us
to our bedside table and our
coffee sets

we'll remember good lies
when they live in a room
with us, use our kitchen table
and our little beds

we'll remember good lies when
we carry them home with us
to our bedside table
and our coffee sets

we'll remember good lies when
they're always with us in our
beds, even when we shake our heads

    General CommentIts about believing what you want to believe. Living in a dreamworld that you have created, likely a dreamworld with a significant other.

    General CommentI really like this song. I know the lyrics are "remember the good lies when", but as he repeats it in the chorus, it begins to sounds like something more cynical, "remember the good lies win"... I wonder if that's intentional.

    We construct our reality based on lies we tell ourselves, lies we tell others, lies others tell us. We need these lies to go on, to have any kind of intimacy with others. What else can we do?
