They’re only lies if you don’t believe me,
and if you leave me, they are
whatever I want them to be. I find you
interesting and beautiful (in a nondescript
kind of way) but that’s not to say
I don’t love you! (I don’t, but that’s not to say!)
We could see eye-to-eye, if you didn’t always
fall short (sort of an eye-to throat arrangement).
That would explain our estrangement
(and my derangement for telling you
what you want to hear.) Hard as I try
for the most part, I cannot tell a lie!
(At least not to your face!).
And this time I mean it!
