I will lie,
To save you the pain, save you the heartache.
I will lie, even as it eats away at me,
Hearing your voice every night you call me.
Hurts me, when I see you’re sad,
Especially when I am helpless.
I’ll always try to help,
Even as it kills me.
I’ll lie, I’ll stay around, I won’t leave,
Even as I know I should,
Been told I should,
I need to leave.
But hurting you isn’t an option.
Even if you still accuse me of causing pain.
I’ll lie, stay around,
Put on a brave face and a smile,
To make you feel better,
Even if only a little while.
