A Poisoned Lie
I told a lie instead
I told a lie that you were dead
A lie so bold it was almost true.
A lie, it could have ended you.
I lied to them and said you’d gone
off a mountain and beyond
I lied so hard it was almost true,
this lie, it could have ended you.
You left me there to wait
I cried so hard and full of hate
A hate so strong, it could only be
better to be dead than not to love me.
