Deer Tick – Little White Lies lyrics

Well everybody, everybody who has reached out so far to me,
Well never did we ever think that these were desperate times or misery,
And they softly spoke of how it's supposed to be,
Never did I think that I was so naive.

So please let me be lonely tonight,
For how many times I thought this was the life,
But I'm not so sure I even am alive.

Well I've torn apart and warded off nearly every lover every friend,
Every smile was so delicate, floated around until the nights would end,
And I'd wander off and then I'd find a bed,
With the thought of her still dancing 'round my head...

So please let me be lonely tonight,
How many times I thought that you were right,
But I knew that they were all Little White Lies.

You have my heart so take my money too,
Look at how I've gone and made myself a fool,
I couldn't please you, you never believed that I was true,
So darlin', oh darlin', please let me forget about you... Oh!

So please let me be lonely tonight,
You know that I don't want to have to yell or fight,
No I'm not the one to judge what's wrong and right.

So please, let me be lonely tonight,
Oh I know that in your heart you'll be just fine,
So forget you ever looked into my eyes.
