A House

I Lied

When I said
When I said that I loved you
I lied

When I said
When I said that I need you
I lied

To get what I so richly deserve

When I said
When I told you that you were my best friend
I lied

When I said
When I swore that I won't hurt you
I lied

To get what I to get what I so richly deserved

Because I
I even lied to myself
The truth is so often dull and uninspired
Dull and uninspired

I sit back and I make it all up
I sit back and I make it all up in my make-believe chair

I'm the only one that gets hurt
I'm the only one that gets hurt
I'm the only one that gets hurt

When I said, when I said
When I said, when I found
I don't love you anymore
I lied, I lied, I lied
I adore you

When I said, when I need you
I want you, I'll stay with you
In sickness and health, for richer or poorer
I lied, I lied, I lied, I lied
And I will lie again

So when I say, when I say
When I say, when I say
I put you before even life itself
I lied, I lied, I lied
For I am still alive

To get what I
To get what I so richly deserve

Because I
I even lied to myself
The truth is so often
Dull and uninspired
Dull and uninspired
