Tell me, was it Thursday at two?
Tell me, was that when you knew? I did too 'cause
There's no subtle grace in face-plants and sadly
You've been busy dropping hints and I've been tripping over them.

I'd like to say I didn't notice.
Yeah, it's be nice if it'd gone just like I wrote it.
Maybe now I'd do it different but back then
I had to try. I ran right off the edge, I thought that I could fly.

And it has been a beautiful lie, a beautiful lie.
It took me in. It kept me warm; it kept me dry.
Now I know why: 'Cause in betwen the moth and the light
It's so beautiful.

I'm leaving you this tiara.
It's a fake; besides, it's too hard to wear them.
But the way they shine is so fine.
Do you mind if I keep a piece of it? I'd rather not get over this.

And it has been a beautiful lie, a beautiful lie.
It took me in. It kept me warm; it kept me dry.
Now I know why: 'Cause in betwen the moth and the light
It's a beautiful lie.

Maybe it's high time that I should have known.
But if you don't mind I'll skip the blow-by-blow.
And thought it's been good as distractions go
I just might think twice if you'd throw me a rope.

And it has been a beautiful lie, a beautiful lie.
It took me in. It kept me warm; it kept me dry.
Now I know why: 'Cause in betwen the moth and the light
It's so beautiful,
A beautiful lie.
