beautiful lies

*

watching the rain

a thousand voices call her name

she turns the lights on

to blind the pain

*

she runs out the door calling

she leaves the TV on

what does she do

when her faith is falling

*

she lights a candle

shadows dancing on the wall

will there be moonlight

when darkness falls

*

beautiful lies, beautiful lies

will she survive

as angels cry, as angels cry

are you there,

are you there

she’s all alone

without a prayer,

without a prayer

*

love’s crimson glow

fading into pale

listening as twilight

turns to day

*

why do her memories last a moment (and then they’re gone)

she writes an ending but it’s all wrong

*

why does her heart feel so alone

why does her song seem so hollow

won’t you please tell her

*

won’t you tell her that you knew it all along

*

watching the rain a thousand voices call her name

she turns the lights on

to blind the pain

*

beautiful lies

*

this one

on repeat

for another cold wednesday

*

i wondered if she

felt the same way writing it

the way i felt when listening to it.
