Beautiful Lie

Threw the covers back this morning, a cold and empty space

Tears so frozen, nothing left to cry

Every word she whispered, every kiss that I still taste

All of it a beautiful lie

The promise in her smile and the treason that came with it

I was living in denial and knowing every minute


Love is a dream

And dreams are unreal

But I’d rather dream

Than wake up and feel

Love me forever, love me forever

Never say goodbye

Love is a beautiful, beautiful lie

Love is a beautiful, beautiful lie

In this perfect darkness she’s all that I see

I can almost feel her soft against my skin

Such a sweet illusion I almost believe

She’s in my arms again
