You told me words that will never expire
Watch what my body says when you’re caught being a liar
I’ll fire words as staccato sounds
Grinding my teeth, shoulders tightly wound
You told me words that I had once admired

Once I was sure that our love wouldn't change
Oh how I’ve been so wrong, you’re the only to blame
You gently weep as my forehead frowns
Absent words keep and a heartache pounds
You told me words that I no longer require

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

Talking of faults, shifting blame from yourself
Caught in a mess of words when you try lying as help
Try to be stable while my anger swells
You’ve been unfaithful but my heart won’t dwell
You told me words that will never expire

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

But your heart was the furthest thing away
When you told how you’d chosen to behave
And the false words you told me made haste
All the tales and secret ways that kept their pace

    My InterpretationAmazing song, lyrically and musically.
    "But your heart was the furthest thing away
    When you told how you’d chosen to behave" - brilliant.

    I think it's about a relationship ending. More specifically, he finally confesses to cheating on her with another woman, and she realises that most of his words to her in the past have all been lies, so he could cover up his infidelity.
