  • Lyrics: Even if it’s Just a Lie (mccloskey, ©2001) Paint it any color that you want, In smaller case letters or a completely different font No one can interpret a connection amputated Words are running wild but get lost in the translation So sing me to sleep with your lullabies And then tell me that you love me even if it’s just a lie If it’s all a series of distractions till I die Why am I staring at a clock that I can set my heart by So I look into your eyes and I pray for reinvention And I slowly realize that you’ve diverted my attention So sing me to sleep with your lullabies And then tell me that you love me even if it’s just a lie Not a single wasted movement’s lost on me I see little things in you that I used to see in me But there’s no point in dissecting things that can’t be simplified Just tell me that you love me even if it’s just a lie… Sing me to sleep with your lullabies And then tell me that you love me even if it’s just a lie
