Lyrics

THE PERFECT LIE

IF I COULD READ YOUR MIND
YOUR THOUGHTS WOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE
‘CAUSE WE BOTH KNOW THE SECRETS YOU KEEP HIDDEN THERE
IF YOU COULD SEE YOURSELF
THROUGH ANYBODY ELSE’S EYES
YOU’D SEE THE LOVE WE TRIED TO HOLD HAS DISAPPEARED

OUR WORLD HAS ENDED
COULD YOU BE THE LAST TO KNOW
YOU SAY I LOVE YOU
BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT SO

YOU TELL THAT LIE THE PERFECT LIE
AS IF MY HEART WAS THAT NAÏVE
YOU’VE TOLD THAT LIE A THOUSAND TIMES THAT’S NOT LOVE
IT’S MAKE BELIEVE

I WATCH YOU CROSS THE ROOM
AND SLOWLY CLOSE THE BEDROOM DOOR
YOU TRY TO SMILE BUT I CAN SEE ANOTHER FACE
YOU’RE JUST AS BEAUTIFUL
BUT I DON’T KNOW YOU ANYMORE
YOU’RE TRYING HARD TO ACT LIKE NOTHING HERE HAS CHANGED

OUR WORLD HAS ENDED
COULD YOU BE THE LAST TO KNOW
YOU SAY I LOVE YOU
BUT THAT DOESN’T MAKE IT SO

YOU TELL THAT LIE THE PERFECT LIE
AS IF MY HEART WAS THAT NAÏVE
YOU’VE TOLD THAT LIE A THOUSAND TIMES THAT’S NOT LOVE
IT’S MAKE BELIEVE

WE’RE BOTH CRYING OUT FOR LOVE
BUT OUR WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH
NOT ENOUGH TO SAVE US

YOU TELL THAT LIE THE PERFECT LIE
AS IF MY HEART WAS THAT NAÏVE
YOU’VE TOLD THAT LIE A THOUSAND TIMES THAT’S NOT LOVE
IT’S MAKE BELIEVE
