Yo La Tengo – How Much I've Lied lyrics

Darling, there is something I must tell you, you must know
But it's so hard to say the words I feel
This fancy that I'm on, has been goin' on too long
It's time we stopped pretending things are real

'Cause I've been living deep in sin, I've been telling lies
And I don't know just what's right or wrong
To take a chance on losing you was such a silly thing to do
The chance I might wake up and find you gone

Blue, so blue, my love is burning blue
Any brighter flame would be a lie
Blue, so blue, my love still burns for you
But I know that I'll only make you cry

A thief can only steal from you, he cannot break your heart
He'll never touch the precious things inside
So one like you should surely be miles and miles away from me
Then you'd never know how much I've lied

So try to understand the pain, it takes so long when I explain
Please, don't you forget how much I've lied
