bed of lies
lyrics by Penelope Houston/ music by P. Houston, K. Donahue

I've fallen on a bed of lies
I'm floating but I cannot fly
I'm drifting in a revery
and now I want to break free

you took me for a lovers ride
it shook me when you stole my pride
I'm shaking to think all the time
I hung my soul out on the line

but your just playing with me
like I've seen you playing around with my dolls
you're not staying with me
you made a bet I'd be the one who falls
you're hoping I
you're hoping I won't notice where you've been
well I've seen enough
I've seen enough to make me want to scream

I'd fallen into lonely times
I thought you were a friend of mine
I fell for you when I was down
but I'm not hanging around

I saw you in an open car
you're leaving but you won't go far
I left you with all of my dream
all the things I'll never need

but your just playing with me
like I've seen you playing around with my dolls
I'm not staying with you
to be your net when you start to climb the walls
I've heard enough
I've heard enough to make a bed of lies
and when I tuck you in and leave
we'll see what makes a grown man cry
cry
baby cry
