a world of lies

We live in a world of lies

Where love habitually dies

I tried to hang on

But you gave me nothing to hold

Tonight I am gone

Because this emptiness feels cold

I needed to warm the space

Between love and what we’d do

Maybe another time or place

Is all we need to see it through

But right now there you are

Lying away and breaking my heart

Which is why we didn’t get far

Honesty was needed from the start

Love gets lost in lies

The beginning of many goodbyes
