Every Answer is a Lie


Every answer is a lie,

Every night it all unfolds.

Only when I'd rather die

Is when the truth is told.


Every answer is one I hide,

It scares me more than you know

Because when I search,

Its you I find

And its harder when you go.


I'm sorry if I took your trust

And threw it all away.

I'm sorry that I wasn't enough

To make you want to stay.


I'm sorry that I can't stop

Wanting to be with you.

And I'm sorry because I will not

Say goodbye to you.
