about

Deceit ruins relationships.

lyrics

You may not realise that you steal the night from me.
I lay my head down for rest and awake with it full of sleep.
Holding on to nothing because nothing is all that you give.
When I'd rather hold on to something, but I just don't know what that is.

How am I supposed to believe when all that you do is deceive?
And how am I supposed to confide when you lie?

The sand, the waves, the wind and the stars not in your eyes.
All remind me of the pain. Barely manage to stifle a sigh.

How am I supposed to believe when all that you do is deceive?
And how am I supposed to confide when you lie?

This experience has certainly changed me,
but who knows what price I must pay?
As the new me comes into focus and the old me rapidly fades.
And now that it's finally over I can't say I have much regret.
It's just a shame that the stain on my memory is the only thing that I have left.

How am I supposed to believe when all that you do is deceive?
And how am I supposed to survive when all that you do is contrive?
How am I supposed to not want when all you say is "You cannot"?
And how am I supposed to confide when you lie?

How am I supposed to believe when all that you do is deceive?
And how am I supposed to confide when you lie?
When you lie. When you lie. When you lie.
