when people lie

when people lie
they almost always try
to prevent somebody else from crying

partners, friends and politicians
some, they do it for the money
mostly however we are cowardly
we just don’t dare to speak the truth
and then employ a little ruse

when people lie
they almost always try
to prevent somebody else from crying

lawyers, priests and musicians
some, they do it for the money
mostly however we are cowardly
we just don’t dare to speak the truth
and then employ a little ruse

and if you pass judgment on me
i am here to tell you the truth
my good mood ain’t fake, i’m real and pure
i’m not heartbroken, i’m not hurt
and i don’t like the casual flirt

when people lie
they sometimes try
to prevent themselves from crying
