02.27.10 i had to lie

i had to lie

i had my doubts
i couldn't shake them
i wondered how someone could take them
so far away
there was a time when i was a proud and
heartless prize to win
or to be left for those deserving

i had to lie
so still until the way i hoped just disappeared
into the way i feel about you
i let my weaknesses grow old
as if i lived to let them go

i decided once invited
i'd make an effort to be someone like you
with nothing to prove
you take a light you make it bright
i don't think about how long this time
i don't ask why
