The Liar


The Liar

Slide into me in the lull of the candle light
and let me feel your warmth
Slide down over my aching heart
and let my Love come alive again

but you don't know what you've done
No, you don't know what you've begun
There's no peace here, no place here
not a single hide away of refuge

You slide into me gently
and much like a raging ball of fire
you bring me to life again
from the deep blue arctic seas in my heart

I find that fire again
I find that I can feel once more
and you feel me
yes you feel me sliding into you

Just sharpen your eyes my Love
let them fall over me at night
See me here sitting as an island
and see you there, what were you thinking?

You softened me, you broke me
You brought me to life again
and then you settled me down
with a good night kiss and a wavering blade

slide it in me Love
slide it deep into my heart again
Let me feel pain and fire
And then Let me feel that lovely nothing once more

But it's not your fault
I just don't understand
It's not your fault
that it all got so far out of hand

You just didn't know baby
You just didn't know
Now that, My Love, is a lie
And that, My Love, we both know

so here is the dagger
and there lies my heart
be just one more person
who tore me apart

I can not learn to trust again
I can not learn to Love
I can not learn to rise above
The games that most call Love

Sit in the cold with me tonight
And give me your hand
Let us talk about this for a minute
Let us try and understand

There's just one minute here
Just one where you stand a chance
I handed it to you unashamed
and you threw it all away

But it's not your fault
I just don't understand
It's not your fault
that it all got so far out of hand

You just didn't know sugar
You said you didn't know
Now that, My Love, is a lie
And that, My Love, we both know

Tell me again how it was that I gave my heart to you
Tell me again how it was that suddenly we're through
I reached into the ashes and handed you a shard
that was all that was left and now you've blown it all away

So go lay down now and sleep while you can
Go lay down Love I know you dont understand
You're so young and I'm so far gone
There's nothing here for us to salvage

Simply because you're too proud to hold on.
