Built To Spill – Lie For A Lie lyrics

I can see a storm awaiting
Quietly anticipating

Don't deny, it no debating
A truth for a truth
Cruel, but everybody does it
A lie for a lie

I thought by now I'd rise above it
You complain but don't discuss it
A lie for a lie

A truth for a truth
I know the thoughts are on your brain

And even if they're not the same
Close enough so don't explain

A truth for a truth
A lie for a lie
Once in a while there's this girl I don't know in my dreams
She reminds me of a lot of people
She's someone that I've never seen
And she's perfect
'Kay begin...

... Some inaudible screaming
