Livin' Lies

Poetry By: CursedHeart

It's easier to life a lie then live life

They told me Honesty was the best Policy
They said that lyin' was a sin
Well I must be headin' for hell
Must be that angel that fell
And hit to hard
Cause I just can't get by
Unless I'm livin' lies
Lying when I tell myself I'm proud of who I am
When deep down I sometimes I wish I was one of them
Lying when my friends ask if I'm ok, and "fine" is what I say
When I just don't know how I get through it every day
Lying when I smile at him and tell him I'm happy he's found someone new
When really, anything but "I love you" just isn't true
Lying when I say I'm ready to head out and live on my own
When I'm completely frightened of doing this all alone
Oh, It's so easy to get by
When you're Livin' Lies
What would happen if I just let them go?
Just told everyone the truth
Holdin' them in must be a strain
But really, the lies keep me sane
The truth is hard
So i will just get by
And keep living lies
Lying to myself when I say I love this life
When it's stock full of unknown grief and strife.
Lying to my friends when I tell em' I dont' care what people say
When I can barely keep my hatred and hurt at bay
Lying to him when I tell him I'm interested in someone new
When there's really no one else I would pursue
Lying when I say I'll be fine with out my family by my side
When I wish I could have them along for the ride
Oh it's just so easy
When your livin' lies
The only truth is I need all these lies
Otherwise I'd be a mess
My confidence would crash
I'd be in tears in a flash
Judge me if you wish
But I'll still get by
Livin' my precious Lies
