I thought it was curtains for us
All seemed so certain
You could say that the words are my version
The things are the reason you're hurtin'
I thought it was curtains for us
All seemed so certain
And I know that the reason I lied was a crime and it's kinda disturbin'

And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong
And you're so wrong
And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong


And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lying to you
And I've never said a word so true

It used to be a case of trying to impress her
I pestered her daily
This lady arrested? my heart and I highly respected her
Take a lie detector but I'd probably pass the test
And I started this, not defending it
But you're asking me questions
Creating the tension, the tension
I miss all the tenderness
It's the truth but the truth isn't ending this

And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong
And you're so wrong
And I'm happy to admit that I lied
And I'll admit that I ruined your life
You can never admit if you tried
And you're so wrong

And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lying to you
And I've never said a word so true


Our love was built on glass from day
We both were too afraid to say
Our love was built on glass from day
Too afraid to say

And til' you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I start crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
I'll find the tallest giants
And break the rules of science
But I'll never stop lyin to u
And I've never said a word so true

    It's about a failed relationship in which one person has realised what has happened and admitting their faults in what happened when the relationship fell apart. Whereas the other person is in total denial that they ever did anything wrong and the problems were all to do with the other person.

    I think it's about two people not admitting thier feelings for each other, and that
    They lie to protect thier feelings from one another, and that "they are too afraid to say"
